The cobblestone streets in the historic centre of Rennes France are lined with 15 and 15 century Tudor Style buildings. Some with crooked doorways, and leaning walls. It was an interesting walk, especially since there were so few people in the centre during the holiday weekend. Here are just a few of the images;

    • Hi Klaske, I am happy to hear you like the post. it is quite amazing that some of these buildings still stand given how old they are, the history of the area and the conflicts they have seen. if the walls could talk the stories they would tell!

    • A better historian than myself will have to explain the connection, but apparently Henry Tudor had been exiled in Brittany before returning to Wales to fight for the crown and become King Henry Vll. This I believe, from my reading, the connection and similarities in architectural styles.
