The capital of Trégor, Lannion is the second biggest town in Côtes-d'Armor. Built on the hillside on the banks of the River Léguer, it comprises a lower part and an upper part of undeniable charm, with old half-timbered or slate-clad houses. The oldest ones, from the 16th century, are on Rue des Chapeliers. On Place du Marhallac'h, you can admire two houses with turrets.

For a direct view of the town, head to the Brélévenez steps: 140 steps lined by small houses, with an exceptional panorama when you reach the top. Time seems to have stood still in the district of Brélévenez, with its Templar church and typical houses.

Don't miss the Church of St. John du Baly, built in the 16th century and extended in the 17th century: its square tower once had a spire, which was demolished in 1760. Another sight to see: the old convent of St. Anne, now converted into a social and cultural centre.

There are some lovely woodland walks awaiting you along the Léguer: this is the realm of springs, secret chapels and sheltered little harbours, all the way to the beaches of Beg Léguer.

On Thursdays, the town is busy with its big, well-known market.
