Originally build to guard the River Rance, this fairytale tower is now a museum dedicated to the sailors of St Malo and the French explorers who first negotiated Cape Horn. Here you'll find lots of models of tall ships and if you take the steps up to the top of the tower you'll be afforded panoramic views of the river Rance estuary.
