Beautiful Walls

We could see the walls and garden from our hotel, the ramparts nearly go the whoe way around the town, lots of lovely garden space next to them, lovely for just sitting and watching the world go by

A must visit to the medieval ramparts.
Sep 2019
While we were in Vannes we couldn’t park at the Halles des Lices and being one-way the only way out was through the narrow Porte de Poterne and across the even narrower bridge to the main road. Wonderful. Not only was there cheap parking on the Rue Francis Decker but we were suddenly looking at the magnificent ramparts of the city and the ramparts gardens.
The ramparts are immense and leave you a little in awe especially trying to visualise what they were like in their heyday. A fraction of the original is still intact and consist of a large section of the battlement walls, two magnificent towers, four arched entrances (portes) and the Chateau de l’Hermine. It is a must to walk the length of the walls and take in the views of the gardens and the town. They act a great viewing platform for photographs. Definitely recommended.

Worth walking on and under

After visiting the cathedral we went up on the walls surrounding the old town. Free if charge one can only walk a short piece of these ramparts. But from above you can see down into the formal gardens planted outside the walls. We went down to walk through them. Alice in Wonderland could have played here.

Surprising garden
Aug 2019 • Family
Just when you're fed up with all the houses and the crepes and galettes, go visit the French (of course) garden on the Remparts. It's clearly also a place for the locals to come and sit and let their children play

One of the best preserved in France.

These lovely ramparts, with formal gardens embrace the medieval centre like a necklace. You can wander for ages and see something different and each point.

A Walk Back in Time to Medieval Days
Jun 2019 • Friends
The City of Vannes and its examples of medieval walls and architecture is a superb experience. It is beautifully restored/maintained with lovely gardens and buildings. If you visit when the open market is operating, all the better. They also have a covered market. You'll also find lovely restaurants and shops inside the walls.

Great example of medieval architecture that looks stunning in the evening sunlight.
Worth checking on times of opening to view the interior though.

Stunning architecture of defensive structure
May 2019 • Family
You have to give it to the French, even when building something as drab as a defensive structure, they make it in such away to make it look elegant, while being very practical for purpose.
The huge rounded towers were magnificent and would have been daunting to face for any attacking force.
