St Malo

Saint-Malo is a walled port city in Brittany in northern France on the English Channel. It is a sous-préfecture of the Ille-et-Vilaine département.

Saint-Malo has 50,000 inhabitants, but that number can increase to up to 200,000 in the summer tourist season. With the suburbs, the population is about 135,000.

St Malo History

Saint-Malo during the Middle Ages was a fortified island at the mouth of the Rance River, controlling not only the estuary but the open sea beyond. The promontory fort of Aleth, south of the modern centre in what is now the Saint-Servan district, commanded approaches to the Rance even before the Romans, but modern Saint-Malo traces its origins to a monastic settlement founded by Saint Aaron and Saint Brendan early in the 6th century. Its name is derived from a man said to have been a follower of Brendan, Saint Malo.

In the later centuries it became notorious as the home of a fierce breed of pirate-mariners, who were never quite under anyone's control but their own; for four years from 1590, Saint-Malo even declared itself to be an independent republic, taking up the motto "not French, not Breton, but Malois". The Corsairs of Saint-Malo not only forced English ships passing up the Channel to pay tribute, but also brought wealth from further afield. Jacques Cartier, who sailed the St Lawrence river and visited the sites of Quebec City and Montréal - and is thus credited as the discoverer of Canada, lived in and sailed from Saint-Malo, as did the first colonists to settle the Falklands – hence the islands' Argentinian name, Islas Malvinas, from the French Îles Malouines.

The commune of Saint-Servan was merged, together with Paramé, and became the commune of Saint-Malo in 1967.

Saint Malo was the site of an Anglo-French summit which lead to a significant agreement regarding European defence policy. British Prime Minister Tony Blair and French President Jacques Chirac stated that "the [European] Union must have the capacity for autonomous action, backed up by credible military forces, the means to decide to use them, and a readiness to do so, in order to respond to international crises".

Ferry St Malo: Condor Ferries Info:

Saint-Malo is a historic walled port city in Brittany, and one of the most popular destinations in the region. Saint Malo is famed for its old walled city where you will find beautiful old buildings in a maze of small narrow streets, museums, restaurants and cafés. The city also offers some serious retail therapy, with a wide choice of hypermarkets and specialist shopping.

Ferry St Malo: GEOGRAPHY

St. Malo sits on the mouth of the river Rance in Brittany. The city is a walled citadel connected to the mainland by a causeway. The main gates to the citadel are the Grande Porte and the Porte St-Vincent. To the right of the Porte St-Vincent is the town's castle, which houses the Musée de la Ville. The city is surrounded by beaches, accessible under the city ramparts at several points. GETTING AROUND

St. Malo is easy to explore on foot, with the city ramparts offering a walkway around sections of the city. Bicycles can also be hired and used to explore the city and the surrounding area.

The surrounding areas are also easily accessible from the city bus station, situated 1.2 miles from the city centre on Place de Hermine. Ferries also sail from the port area, a few hundred metres from the southern wall of the city, to Dinard, a former fishing village situated on a picturesque inlet on the west bank of the Rance estuary.


As you'd expect, St. Malo offers a breadth of good eating to suit all tastes and budgets. Local specialities include fresh lobsters and Cancale oysters, as well as other classic French fare such as crepes and moules. Some of the most popular restaurants and cafés are situated in a long-line inside the city ramparts between Porte St-Vincent and the Grande Porte.

Situated a few miles south of the citadel, St Malo's Grand Aquarium displays fish and sea life from around the world in 8 different aquariums. The aquariums include a circular fish tank, allowing visitors to stand in the middle of swirling fish shoals. Other attractions include underwater rides on a Nautibus, and ship wreck and a lost city exhibits.
