San Malo is located in the Brittany region of France and likes to make its distinction known. The old city was once a well fortified island, but a seawall has since been built that connects the old city to the mainland of Brittany and the newer expanded parts of the city. At one point San Malo was a very rich city as it was the home for many government sanctioned pirates, privateers, that patrolled the English Channel. In more recent history almost 80% of the city was destroyed during WWII. A faithful and meticulous restoration of the old city has been completed and it still has much of its old world feel.
