Rennes is the capital of Brittany in north-western France. It is known for its medieval wooden houses and masonry and its majestic cathedral
The city of Rennes was almost entirely wiped out by a great fire in 1720. This is why you would find several dignified late 1700s houses when you visit. Around the cathedral, however, is a network of streets where half-timbered houses survived the raze
On Rennes’ highest hill is ten hectares of the most superb gardens you may ever see. Parc du Thabor is a marvel. If you need to be swayed, think about the rose gardens in summer, where over 2,000 varieties bloom yearly.
