Located 257 miles W of Paris and 43 miles N of Rennes, St-Malo was originally a fortified island situated at the mouth of the River Rance. Today this port town is connected to the mainland via a causeway and is the departure point for regular ferry service to the Channel Islands. During the 16th-19th centuries, St-Malo gained prosperity through the activities of its corsairs, who raided foreign ships with the permission of the king. Destroyed during WWII, the city has been completely rebuilt to recapture its original charm and is, today, the most visited city in Brittany.
