The prefecture of Côtes-d'Armor lies within a bay that is a listed Nature Reserve and is visited by nearly 50,000 migratory birds.

Its historic centre, a few minutes from the bay, is remarkable: half-timbered houses from the 15th and 16th centuries, a fortified cathedral, the Church of St. Stephen, built from the 13th to the 18th century… The latter is evidence of the town's evangelisation as early as the 6th century, and its commitment to defence, worthy of a castle fort! You can admire the Annunciation altarpiece from the 18th century, an Anglo-Norman-style choir from the 14th century and an organ from the 19th century with beautiful carved woodwork. The church is based in the old part of town, where there are half-timbered houses, some of which are listed historic monuments.

There are many cultural and sports activities available throughout the year in Saint-Brieuc. These include water sports, walking, mountain biking and shellfish-gathering.

At Saint-Brieuc Art and History Museum, you will find some lovely art and ethnology collections, focussing on underwater archaeology and maritime heritage , slash-and-burn farming, weaving, crafts, etc.

A walk around Le Légué harbour is a must. This is the fifth biggest port in Brittany and hosts a big maritime festival in July. Starting from the Cesson tower, which was once part of a fortress, the "bird path" will lead you to the biggest nature reserve in the region and Valais beach.

As a "European Destination of Excellence" in gastronomy, Saint-Brieuc also invites you to enjoy its local specialities: there are some very good restaurants which you simply must try, as well as the local markets and delicatessens, which are brimming with tasty treasures!
