  1. Photo Gallery

Dinan counts many medieval ruins including/understanding of the almost intact ramparts and the "castle of the Anne duchess". Mainly built at the end of XIVe century, it constitutes a very good example of inhabited keep, strongly strengthened while presenting on several levels a complete apartment intended to the duke and for his continuation. It illustrates perfectly the principle of superposition of the parts: Room common on the lower floor, high rooms being reserved to the significant people. A private vault communicates with one of the higher rooms. Dinan, city and castle, were the property of the family of Dinan until XIIIe century, time when the dukes seized some. Jeanne de Penthièvre resided at it during the civil war where a famous courteous episode during proceeded which, during a seat, Bertrand of Guesclin and Thomas de Canterbury entered in string and devoted themselves to tournaments in front of the walls of the city.
