History of Brittany
Just across the border with Normandy, this magnificent Benedictine Abbey dates back to the eighth century and offers a blend of Gothic and Romanesque architecture in a simply stunning location atop a rocky outcrop in the sands.
Best-known for its wartime history, St Nazaire is still home to France’s ship and plane-building industries. Plane buffs will be in heaven, and those with an interest in WWll will remember the famous raid, Operation Chariot.
