Rennes is the capital of Brittany and it is a town that is well worth visiting. We visited twice while we were in Brittany and we would like to return when we are next in France. We barely scratched the surface while we were there.
Rennes is well known for the wooden buildings in the old part of town. You can read a little about its history here.
The Palais du Commerce is in the background of the next photograph. A beautiful building set in the Place de la République.
One of the buildings we came across was part of an extensive archaeological dig.
The signage explains what has taken place on the the site of this old monastery. 2000 Years of history under the Jacobean monastery.
On our way to the train station we passed this charcuterie that had an amazing window display. At first glance I thought it was a patisserie but on closer inspection you can see that they are not pies and cakes but patés and terrines.
