Le Port area of Vannes!!!

Looking at my vault of pictures found several not in my blog yet on this beautiful lively area of my capital city. I took it upon getting you some basic information as plenty already in my other posts on Le Port area of Vannes with new blog pictures and tell you more about this magical area. Hope you enjoy it as I.


By now, you have read several posts on Vannes, or Gwened (Breton language) capital city of my beautiful Morbihan (Breton language for petite mer or small sea) dept 56 of my lovely Bretagne or Breizh (Breton language) of my belle France (Bro C’hall in Breton). However, take a look at the pictures, they are new in my blog and tell more of the story of this wonderful Le Port area we come every week.

As said, have plenty of history elsewhere in my blog on Vannes, and Le Port area so this is for the pictorial of this pretty area of my capital city.

The Le Port is a lively and urban district of Vannes, covering an area of 1.5 km². It has many corners of greenery such as the Parc de la Garenne, the Butte de Kérino and the Jardin de Limur.(see posts). The place Gambetta, of hemispherical plan, marks the end of the port of Vannes and puts it in contact with the historic center by the Porte Saint-Vincent.



The port of Vannes is a commercial port, a passenger port and a Marina located north of the Gulf of Morbihan along a 1 200 meters channel that leads the boats from the commercial port of Pont-Vert to the afloat basin at the foot of the Porte Saint-Vincent, entrance gate of the old town of Vannes.
