Oui, St. Malo
Venturing off to the old walled town, the Intra-Muros, one can explore all the main highlights of St. Malo. The museum, la Maison du Quebec, invites visitors to learn the fascinating history of one of St. Malo’s most famous natives, Jacques Cartier. This French explorer is not a stranger to the island of St. Malo, and he is worldly-known for his unintentional discovery of Canada. Ordered from King Francis I, he was to search for a new route to Asia in 1534 and found more than what he originally planned during his exploration along his route on the St. Lawrence River. You may want to visit the Musée de Jacques Cartier, located near the Rotheneuf District, to learn more about the life of the French explorer and the history of French Canada.
Two kilometers south of St. Malo, the picturesque fishing port of St. Servan awaits with its Grand Aquarium – home to 600 species of fish around the globe and one of the largest aquariums in France. Here, the beaches beckon with the clearest waters you’ll ever see in the north of France, such as at its longest beach, the Grand Plage. Iconic monuments and attractions can be enjoyed with a walk along the ramparts or a journey to the Fort National during low tide.
