Saint-Brieuc is a quaint little city located in Brittany, France. It is the prefecture of the Cotes-d'Armor department and has a population of around 40,000 people. The city itself has a charming atmosphere due to its old medieval streets and buildings, as well as its stunning natural scenery.

The main attraction in Saint-Brieuc is its historic center which is full of medieval churches, traditional Breton houses and narrow cobblestone streets. In the heart of town lies Place de Lices which hosts weekly markets selling local produce, handicrafts and clothing.

The nearby coast also offers plenty to explore with stunning cliff views, sandy beaches and picturesque fishing villages to discover. One of the most popular places for sightseeing on this coast is La Pointe Sainte Barbe which features an impressive lighthouse as well as several walking trails leading along the coast line.

If you're looking to experience some local culture then head over to one of Saint-Brieuc's many festivals throughout the year such as La Foire aux Vins or Festival du Chant de Marin - both celebrating traditional Breton music and dance!
