La Cour La Hussaye
Located in the heart of Saint-Malo is a fairytale turret named La Cour La Hussaye. Many old postcards of the town refer to it as the ‘House of Duchess Anne.’ This is supposedly the oldest building in the city, the Maison Hussaye. Despite being built in the 15th century, the turret was demolished and rebuilt centuries later. The house and tower somehow escaped destruction during the battle for the city in 1944, although much of the city was destroyed. It has a unique silhouette thanks to the facades and towers rising up from its fortifications. You can enjoy wonderful views from its parapet walk!
