Saint-Malo is a historic French port in Brittany on the Channel coast. Saint-Malo is considered by many to be among the most beautiful cities in the world.
The walled city had a long history of piracy, earning much wealth from local extortion and overseas adventures. In 1944, the Allies heavily bombarded Saint-Malo, mistaking it for a major enemy base. Today it is a popular tourist centre, with a ferry terminal serving Portsmouth, Weymouth, and Poole.
