Intra-muros is the oldest and most beautiful part of Saint-Malo. This is where I walked around the cobblestone streats surrounded by massive walls, where I spun ideas with fellow authors and editors in front of a large plate of fresh seafood, and where I enjoyed the sun and a glass of white wine at one of the many terraces.
Chaussée du Sillon
Both my hotel and the festival site were situated on the Chaussée du Sillon, so it was easy to find a few minutes to tip my toes into the sea and to relax on the beach.
The famous military architect Vauban designed the Fort National in 1689 as a means to protect the port of Saint Malo. It is situated right in front of the Palais du Grand Large where the festival took place.
