In the heart of the historic center of Dinan, the castle is a must-see monument if you are exploring the medieval city. And if you don't bring a prince or princess home, you can at least capture the breathtaking view of Léhon. An unmissable photo spot in Dinan!
Mount your lens and make your final adjustments, the city strikes a pose especially for you. From the Promenade des Petits Fossés, the view encompasses the ramparts and the keep.
Our advice? Opt for a visit to the Château de Dinan to learn more about the history of this building. And to impress your loved ones on the day of the visit, remember that the fortress is a ducal residence from the XNUMXth century!
from the English garden
Go to the upper part of the ramparts, behind the Saint-Sauveur Basilica. Very photogenic, the panorama over the Rance valley is one of the most beautiful photo spots in Dinan! Reach the top of the Tour Sainte-Catherine to contemplate the landscape. Below, the port, the viaduct and the river invite contemplation.
As you walk through the garden, enjoy the view of the apse of the Saint-Sauveur Basilica and take out the camera again!

on the Place Saint-Sauveur
All you have to do is sit in the center of Place Saint-Sauveur to appreciate the originality of this photo spot in Dinan. This time, no stairs to climb, no belvedere or bird's eye view. You are in the heart of the city! Spin around to find the perfect angle! The pretty blue house with the Clock Tower in the background appears in the lens? Click, it's in the box

Until 1754, a butchers' hall occupied the place. It is destroyed to build the square, which will later host the cattle market!
at the top of the clock tower
At the foot of the Clock Tower, you have to raise your eyes to more than 45 meters in height to see the top. What if you went to meet him more closely? After climbing nearly 150 steps and a miller's ladder, the reward is worth the effort: a 360° view over the rooftops of Dinan.
We bet it won't take you long to get the camera out. Symbol of bourgeois power and emblem of the city, it is the photo spot in Dinan that is worth a detour in the historic center!

Dating from the XNUMXth century, the clock mechanism is one of the oldest in Europe!
in the street of Jerzual
Medieval decor, craft shops and cobblestones: welcome to the unmissable rue du Jerzual! As atypical as it is steep, the pedestrian street is like timeless. You will have to challenge its elevation to admire all its beauty!
That's good, every corner is conducive to a photo break: the stone of a building, the authenticity of a half-timbered house, a pretty flowery corner... Suffice to say that this is one of the best spots photo in Dinan!
Did you know?
The street has linked the city center to the port of Dinan for several centuries!
on the side of the port of Dinan
In addition to being very photogenic, the port is one of the most beautiful photo spots in Dinan! The view of the ramparts and the viaduct is breathtaking from the bank on the Lanvallay side. And here, difficult to know where to turn! The old bridge and the pretty houses, the boats on the Rance, there is something for everyone... And for all styles.
Desires to take off? Climb aboard your boat and sail on the Rance! The opportunity to immortalize this moment from the deck of a boat by photographing the port of Dinan.
Whether you are sporty or curious, there are many ways to discover the places. By Segway, on foot, by bike or by boat… Choose your means of transport!
from the towpath
Then take the towpath from the port, camera in your bag! Direction Lehon, the Small City of Character south of Dinan. Ideal for stretching your legs, this walk along the Rance offers superb views. This is an opportunity to combine sports and artistic activities! Turn around to take a few shots of the port, the ramparts and the viaduct of Dinan.
The walk continues to Léhon (about twenty minutes on foot), where its Abbey strikes a pose! The gardens are the ideal photo spot to capture the stained glass windows of the Abbey or the view of the Rance. From the Château de Léhon, perched on a rocky promontory, the panorama is photogenic!
The old stone bridge that spans the Rance is THE Instagrammable place on the walk!

We were in Dinan at the beginning of September. A pleasant city to visit, a step back several centuries, a historic city. Visit not to be missed. We will come back next year, we could not, for lack of time, deepen our visit.

Hello, I am from the department of Ain and I discovered your region last summer. I loved DINAN. We close our eyes and we are transported to the Middle Ages. The half-timbered houses, the ramparts, the castle... Du Glesclin, Anne de Bretagne, the weaver... It's teeming in the cobbled streets, towards the stalls... And then, we wake up. It is no longer the same decor but the imposing stone constructions, treasures of time, stand before us. If only they could tell us! But in DINAN ... everything is organized to discover its history and its tourism. Do not hesitate to go to the tourist office. They are at your entire disposal. This charming medieval town dominates the RANCE river. The view is splendid! The city is clean, the merchants and inhabitants are charming. We walk, we stroll, we rest there. I loved. We cannot be disappointed. Thanks.5/5
