We are continuing our walk on the rampart.

We are at the Bastion of Holland located on the western end of the city.  The Bastion de la Hollande is one of the main buildings to see when exploring the ramparts of Saint Malo. Built in 1674 to protect the city from attacks, it has been modified several times over time but still stands proudly, overlooking the city and the sea.
