The old town was tiny, the place had many old buildings but the exterior paint work confused me, they looked like some fake movie setting. Especially in this little square.

As shown in this picture, Place Henry IV is a true miror of the old times. "Ancient elegance", I would define it.

Lovely city, walking and lots to see. Visit the church, gardens and creperie! Parking was okay but can get busy.

The old town is gorgeous, so many beauty buildings to see, lovely quirky streets and shops/cafes. If you are in Vannes on a Wednesday or a Saturday be sure to visit the outdoor market, it is an assault on the senses!
