Day 2- The Port of Dinan-9/27/2023

We are now at the Port de Dinan located along the Rive Rance. 

Le vieux Pont (The old stone bridge) connecting to both banks of the river.  By the early 19th century the bridge was too narrow and too weak to sustain constant and increasing traffic. A new bridge was needed so a new bridge was the the Viaduct de Lanvallay (new Bridge) was built in 1846.


Hoa's sisters and us on Le Vieux pont.


 Lanvallay Viaduct was opened to traffic in 1952.


10 arches support the 820 ft. long by 131 ft. high viaduct which connects Lanvallay on the hillside to the walled city of Dinan.


The Viaduct made a huge difference to local traffic and therefore diverts traffic from the Vieux Pont.


Hoa and Thierry on the Vieux Pont.


The port of Dinan Lanvallay is today an active Marina.


Lots of Boat trips to the fortress of St-Malo and the Channel Islands, and on the river Rance generating a constant flow of traffic.



View of the viaduct from the Quay of the Rance


A multitude of boats are docked along the Quay.



Along the Quay are many traditional restaurants and creperies.


So Beautiful here!
