Rennes (France)

From Luxembourg, you'll need to drive a bit more than 700 kilometers to reach Rennes, a great town of Brittanny, in France, but it does worth it.

I was there last week-end, during the so-called "Transmusicales"..but, shame on me, I was too tired to attend to a concert.

Yet, I had fun walking around the city, so let's have a walk together! Here comes a detail from the Parliament of Brittanny..Yes, here people value designation of things in Breton.

If you are in town on a Saturday, you absolutely have a look at the market which is taking "Place des Lices", this is one of the biggest, if not the biggest. This is a pretty place with, among other things, the "Hôtel des ventes" building, where auctions take place.

At "Place des Lices" you may see characteristic houses from Britanny. You'll also find them at "Place du Champ Jacquet".

When one mentions Brittanny, words like "chouchen", "kouign amann", "crêpes" should pop up in you head. Rennes is full of those "crêperies", those restaurants where you'll enjoy "crêpes" (sort of pancakes) with a bowl of cider, mmhh!

I also really enjoyed seeing this carousel again,at "Place St Anne", so "Royal de Luxe" like, or close to the atmosphere of Jean-Pierre Jeunet's movies.

I will finally leave you with this picture of the Christmas market, at "Place du Parlement de Bretagne". Hope you enjoyed the journey!
