En plus du patrimoine bâtit exceptionelle , on peut aperçevoir depuis 3 hivers consécutifs le magnifique et seul individu de la Bretagne connu, le Wallcreeper Amateur des vieilles pierres, il séjourne entre la basilique saint sauveur et le viaduc surplombant la Rance.



Either by the parking place Saint Sauveur in Dinan, go around the basilica, it is often on the nave side of the English garden, it goes back and forth to the pillars of the viaduct, or either park in rue du four at the nautical center , at the port in Lanvallay, take rue du four.
