“Enjoyable climb and great view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2013

Our 10-year-old daughter was seized by a sudden passion to climb this, and I'm glad she prompted us to go up. There are 158 steps, and the interior is an interesting construction, especially the timber beams near the top. Of course, the draw is the bird's eye view of the town laid out below, and far-ranging views beyond. There is no viewfinder or guide, but the major elements of Dinan are obvious, and there is a charm in looking into people's back gardens too.

Those who don't like loud noises should avoid being on the top balcony when the bell strikes (out of tune!) each quarter hour. Overall, a charming half-hour diversion, handily situated right in the centre of Dinan.
