Description of Saint Malo

Saint Malo 

Saint Malo is located on the island in the mouth of Rance River. The name of the town comes from Saint Malo (Maclou) who settled these area in the 6th century with Saint Brendan and Saint Aaron establishing a small secluded monastic community. Home to many French pirates it has a long proud history of autonomy. In 1490 it even proclaimed an independence from basically everyone and established a motto "not French, not Breton, but Malouins". Malouins are residents of Saint Malo.
