Bridge over the Vilaine

Heading from Vannes toward Nantes, down the N165-E60, you cross the Vilaine River.

As you do, you will find yourself on a very impressive suspension bridge, which clearly replaces an older bridge, the remains of which can still be seen. You have reached La Roche-Bernard.

    The backstreets are always the most interesting part of cities, I think. Nice little page, George

    While I can't actually claim to have been to La Roche-Bernard, your backstreet photo does bring back memories of cycling around in rural France. Also, like Katherine (Ekaterinburg) we used to take our children camping in France when they were growing up.

    That old cannon reminds me of the cannon I saw 35 years ago, overlooking the Suez Canal. Except that one had probably been used lately, as opposed to this one LOL

    Great that the old bridge has been left in situ. Nice little page

    Big nostalgia trip for me here. For about 8 years we took the children to France in the summer and stayed on the excellent French campsites. Driving from the ferry at Roscoff, La Roche B was a familiar landmark to us. Happy days!

    This looks like a scenic area and a quaint town. I would not mind taking the time to do some exploring in little spots like this in France! Nice pics btw!

    Old bridge, new bridge, the cannons standing ready, the threat of the English coming up the river.....all reminiscent of Newport, Rhode Island!! :-)

    There is something very familiar about this town and the photo of the buildings is so appealing.....its the colours I think. Great page, thank you.
