Not only is this a significant medieval site, but it is a great maritime museum. It is dedicated to those mariners from Saint-Malo who navigated there ships around Cape Horn. The views from the top are stunning. Its a long walk from Saint-Malo, or you can take a taxi.

I have been to this area so many times...it's probably my favorite part of the St Servan area of St Malo. Just a couple of bars and restaurants and lovely views across the bay. The tower itself is well worth a look too !

It was built between 1369-1382 by Jean IV the Duke of Brittany, to control the access to the river and the town of St.Malo. Over the centuries the tower lost it's military importance and became a prison. Now, it's a museum celebrating... More

We went to this area for dinner at "la Cale" and went for a lovely evening walk and discovered this place. I would highly recommend visiting this place and enjoy the views along with your tour of the tower. We did not get to go inside as it was late at night. It costs 6.00 euros per adult.

Loved the location and the layout of the museum. If you like seafaring stuff, this is great. Kids may find this a bit boring - more for adults. Run by volunteers and lots of interesting exhibits

An impressive tower. Worth a quick pit stop and take a picture while appreciating the panoramic views

didn't have much time to go and look inside, as we were on 'a mission' to see as much St.Malo as possible....and 6 euros per person didn't seem to be worth it this time, maybe we will have a look the next time we are there
