Musée d'histoire et d'archéologie du Château Gaillard


This town house dating from the beginning of the 15th century has kept its original layout. Built by Jean of Malestroit, Duke Jean V's chancellor, the dwelling reflects the social status of its builder. The house comprises four floors, and is composed of two joined buildings that were built at different times. On the front, a tower used as the main entrance contains a spiral staircase that leads to all the floors. The second floor houses the "Cabinet des Pères du désert" created during the 17th century and decorated with paintings in the Flemish style. Château-Gaillard now houses the Vannes History Museum's prehistoric, Gallo-Roman and medieval collections.
