Built in an amphitheater at the bottom of the golf of the Morbihan, the old town of Vannes is enclosed in its ramparts grouped around the cathedral Saint-Pierre; it has been converted into a pedestrian zone and offers shops set in half-timbered houses. Discover its cathedral Basilica Saint Pierre’s that reflects the city well. Vannes is therefore ideal for the adepts of the XVI-XVII century architecture. With its 9,000 students, it is the 3rd university center of Brittany. The famous festival of Vannes (not to be confused with the festival of Cannes!) Is the Motocultor Festival Open Air. Do you have long hair and like to shake your head to the rhythm of the music ? This festival is meant for you! With more than 22,000 entries in 2016 it is one of the biggest festival of Metal of the Northwest.
