  • Half an hour from Rennes, discover the effervescent heart of the City of the Book. It's a place for meeting and learning with artisans, writers, second-hand book sellers, storytellers and artists from Brittany and elsewhere.

    Here, calligraphy, illumination, illustration and plastic art workshops cohabit with photography and painting exhibitions, storytelling events, musical theatre or screenings. You can discover them on the three floors of this creative brainstorming venue which has five workshop areas, a conference room, an 80-seat auditorium and several exhibition spaces. The cultural and artistic events are always free. Enjoying multiple partnerships and collaborations with cultural associations, the Maison du Livre recently hosted the Festival des Sciences et Mythos. Yearly highlights? The Book Festival in April and the magical Night of the Book, with a new theme every year.
