Fodor's Review

At the edge of the ramparts sits a 15th-century château, its keep and watchtowers commanding an impressive view of the harbor and coastline. It contains the Musée d'Histoire de la Ville, devoted to great figures who have touched local history (like the founder of French Canada, Jacques Cartier, and Châteaubriand, the "Father of Romanticism"); plus the Galerie Quic-en-Grogne, a tower museum that uses waxworks to conjure up various episodes from St-Malo's past.
