rennes

With its traditional timber-frame houses, the Parliament of Brittany, the Parc du Thabor, and contemporary architecture by Jean Nouvel or Christian de Portzamparc, it’s needless to say that Brittany’s capital is a multi-faceted city.

In this destination for food-lovers, chefs revisit traditional Breton ingredients from local markets, like that of Lices, every Saturday morning. This cheerful city is alive with a unique abundance of culture, hosting a different festival every week, exhibitions and alternative cultural spaces – all for you to discover.
