“Viewing platform with an interesting history”
Reviewed 14 November 2013

The ramparts/remparts are the ideal place from which to admire the gardens. The mix of old and new within Vannes is one of the towns strong points and the great protection the walls offered the town in the past now provides an structural embrace within which many of the towns architectural gems can be found.

“Beautiful area”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

Stayed in Vannes for three days and visited the Remparts daily. Beautiful, but especially at night. I found them very accessible, either from the city center, or from the parking area outside them. Not sure about handicap access. Vannes is such a safe city, walking through here at night is not a problem.

“Not accessible”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

While it was nice to wander the streets and view the gardens from outside the wall, the access to the ramparts (just to the left of the main gate) was closed.

“Nice Promenade”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

Well preserved and enhanced by beautiful gardens, the fortifications are quite impressive. Nice to take a walk on the fortifications but also in the garden.
