Le Port de Dinon sits on the river Rance below the main town of Dinan. The little port serves as a link between the town and Saint Malo-on the coast. During the 18th century weavers made it a busy little place making canvases for sails.
Nowadays it is a haven for sailors and tourists alike.There are boat trips along the river or to the fortress of St-Malo and the
Channel Islands generating a fairly constant flow of traffic.
There are some pretty buildings along the riverside as well as a plethora of restaurants. We chose to have a traditional lunch of galette followed by a crepe accompanied by a cup of the local cider.
It was great to be eating outside in October!
Here are a couple of pics I took of photographs in the castle museum showing the port before and after the building of the viaduct.
Plus how it looks today.
If you get the chance it's a lovely place for a weekend break.
