Saint-Malo - on the tracks of "All the light we cannot see"

On the tracks of Jacques Cartier,  of Corsar captains -Surcouf,  DuGuay Trouin) or Marie-Laure Leblanc and Werner Pfennig, heroes of the 2015 Pulitzer price, Saint-Malo is a remarkable port city of Northwestern France. High granite walls surround the old town, which was once a stronghold for corsairs (king-approved pirates). Saint-Malo Cathedral, in the center of the old town, is built in Romanesque and Gothic styles and features stained glass windows depicting the town's history. Nearby is La Demeure de Corsaire, an 18th century corsair house and museum. In the nearby Saint Servan district you can still visit the Cité d'Aleth, the underground military German installations of the second world war. 

Port of Saint Malo
