A Photo Essay of Saint Malo: The Walled City of St. Malo in Bretagne, France

 

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Saint Malo is a beautiful port city that keeps watch on the northern tip of France overlooking the English Channel. Steeped  in history, legend and faith, this tiny hamlet that lives “Intra Muros” (inside the walls) encapsulates the beauty of Bretagne. I have ownership of all the photographs, but please inbox me if you’d like to use one.
