Discover the history of the ramparts of Saint-Malo

1 1

Are you looking for a hotel in Saint-Malo? The Hôtel de la Cité is located in the heart of the city and will allow you to discover the corsair city in all its splendour. A city of many charms, where every street corner is a surprise, St-Malo is protected by an imposing granite wall that its inhabitants call "ramparts". To make sure you don't miss anything about them, there's nothing like a stay in a hotel within the city walls. In fact, our three-star hotel is the best place to admire them!

The ramparts, an emblematic monument in the hearts of the Breton people

Built from the 12th century by the bishop of Aleth Jean de la Grille, the ramparts of Saint-Malo contributed to the expansion of the city. Although only the low walls of the Bidouane Tower (built in the 15th century) and the Grand'Porte (dating from the 16th century) remain from the medieval walls, the ramparts of St-Malo have lost none of their splendour.

Moreover, elected as the French people's favourite monument in 2015, the ramparts have also been classified as a historic monument since 1884. This shows how much they have contributed to the development of the historical heritage of our beautiful country! If you want to make the most of the old town, we can only recommend staying in a hotel located within the ramparts.

In this respect, the Hôtel de la Cité seems to be an exceptional choice. Indeed, our establishment is located in the heart of the corsair city. You can even admire the ramparts from the comfort of your room with a view of the city.
