We did a lot of driving during the day, but stopped in the town of Dinan. Dinan is an extremely well-preserved medieval town. We walked the cobblestone streets following Rick Steve’s self guided tour. Of course the tour took longer than estimated since every building cried out for a photograph. The homes of Dinan have small first floors, but the second and third floors are larger in size. These odd-shaped homes represent a creative method of tax evasion by medieval citizens of Dinan. Dinan determined medieval property taxes based on the square footage of a citizen’s ground floor.
After walking hunger consumed us, and we rewarded ourselves with some delicious crepes.
