Malestroit Travel Guide: 12 reviews and 33 photos

remind me to be back

older town goes back to 987AD, sitting in the departément 56 Morbihan, it is crossover by the canal Nantes- Brest and the river Oust that can misleading from the canal as they look the same.

It has the old chancellerie of Brittany an old house that used to serve as the meeting ground of the council of Brittany. It has the welcome of the Polish soldiers in WWII that from January 1940, welcomed them to form the Mountain chaser Brigade that took part in the battle of Narvik.

Many narrow quaint old streets that has given this town the label of Petite cité de charactére, or small town with character in France.

Nice city to visit off the N166 Vannes-Rennes corridor.
