The Mediaeval City of Rennes is fabulous despite the disastrous fire of 1720. I wandered with my camera and here I just want to share some of the sights.
Rennes seems to date from c.200BC when a settlement was established by a Gallic tribe, the Redones. The Romans then took over c.50 BC until c.5C AD. Thereafter Rennes was part of a fiercely independent Brittany, until absorbed into France through the marriage of Duchess Anne of Brittany to the King of France.
