With its rich history, Redon delights visitors who discover it as they follow the canal that stretches from Nantes to Brest or the river Vilaine.
Redon has a rich heritage: discover the Saint-Sauveur abbey, one of the largest in Brittany during the middle ages, the Château du Mail, the Richelieu tower, 18th century salt barns, many timber-framed houses…In Redon, water is everywhere: to the left, the Vilaine river and the old quays; to the right, the Nantes-Brest canal that crosses the river with a double lock system. In the distance, the dock that was built along with the canal.
A must, the Musée de la Batellerie (inland navigation museum): re-live the history and everyday life of the sailors; learn how the canal works, and about Redon, the sea-port.
To get the most out of Redon, take the historic walk with its informative signposts at 25 different points along the way. In summer, guided tours are available, with the added bonus of downloadable audio guides and tactile media adapted to suit all types of visitor.
