Photographer's Note

The construction of the walls of Saint-Malo began in 1144. From 1708 to 1742 the architect Simeon Garengeau led the expansion of the city program and expansion of the walls according to plans by Vauban. They were built for a better defense of Saint-Malo, which had a harbor strategically well placed. Today, the walls are within walking distance and you can walk around and admire the sea, the various forts around Saint-Malo or inside the walls where the houses of the walled city kept the charm.
