Photographer's Note

I continue this visit of the old Rennes. After the Cathedral, now the old walls. Prying is not all. One must defend itself from the invador at Middle Ages ! At this time, Rennes is the capital of te knigdom of Brittany and not only a provincial town of France, getting orders from Paris.

In this black-and-whited shot for the old side, we can see the entering town door. Today there is less the old town can offer, well, there are nice lanes and streets, but Rennes was a quite big city and the XVIIIth fire made the wood town a small district.

'Mordelaises' means 'from Mordelles' a town situated at the west of Rennes. And 'portes' means 'doors'. The 'doors that lead to Mordelles'.

I will make a new Monumental Rennes theme. So let's shoot, visitors and people who are passing by this town !
