Britanny is full of utter charming little towns and this one is one of the best! Moncontour became famous in the 17th century for the production of linen, and as you walk around, you’ll see many of the merchant house buildings thrived on this trade. A curious thing you’ll not often see is all the signs that the houses have – they signify the building’s original purpose. The main highlights of the town are:

  • The Town Hall
  • The ornate Baroque church of Saint-Mathurin on top of the hill.
  • The 13th and 14th century defensive walls
  • The central marketplace
  • The costumes museum
  • The History Museum

The country around the town is excellent for walking, cycling and horse-riding. Ask the tourist office in Moncontour for more info!
