Discover Auray – port of Saint-Goustan
Saint-Goustan is not a place for wobbling around on high heels. The ramps alongside the River Loch, built on the ruins of a castle, lead you down to the port, and this is a great starting point for a leisurely stroll along the shady terraces of the promenade, with delightful views down to the quays. The most picturesque side of the river is reached by crossing the four-arched stone bridge that dates back to the 13th century. Place Saint-Sauveur, with its round cobbles, is encircled by opulent-looking half-timbered and corbelled houses. The steep streets, cut into steps, trace a path through the town, lined by half-timbered facades. While the 15th and 16th century dwellings look dignified in the daytime, they bustle with café terraces in the evening.
