The city of Dinan is a thousand years old and it has two parts: the fortified high city, with its half-timbered houses, narrow streets, stalls, medieval churches surrounded by ramparts and the lower port city.

In the Middle Age the city is prosperous, mainly thanks to the trade with England. A place called "the field-closed" reminds that Du Guesclin beat there Thomas Canterbury thus saving Dinan from becoming English. A statue of Du Guesclin recalls this war event. The ramparts were fortified in the 15th century.


In the nineteenth century Dinan is mainly a resort town, with a very important British colony. Dinan will be until 1914 a garrison city.
