Heart of the center historique

As shown in this picture, Place Henry IV is a true miror of the old times. "Ancient elegance", I would define it.

Lovely city, walking and lots to see. Visit the church, gardens and creperie! Parking was okay but can get busy.

The old town is gorgeous, so many beauty buildings to see, lovely quirky streets and shops/cafes. If you are in Vannes on a Wednesday or a Saturday be sure to visit the outdoor market, it is an assault on the senses!

This is free just to be there. Take lots of photos and enjoy the wonderful shops all around. When we visited, there was a large public market there and the surrounding area. The food was amazing!!! Oddly enough, the public market "closed" by the time we got back there around 2pm--like it never existed. This was during the weekday so... More

The ancient Vannes center is sited on a hill top where very well preserved buildings and houses surround the Place Henri IV. At one corner one could see the wood bust of Vanne and his wife who one believe were the former properties of the XVI century pub.
