Wow, I'm amazed no one has commented on this yet! Those pictures are stunning and the architecture is out of this world.

Great architecture, amazing these buildings still stand. Most cities have lost all wooden buildings through fires.

A big part of the city burned in the past too, in 1720...
But many are still right here, and all haven't been "rediscovered".
Most of the timberframed building in the center of Rennes are still covered by a coating, as you can see for example on this pic, on the left of the street between the red building and the left border of the pic, the "houses" are all timberframed...

I've heard of Rennes of course but this is the first time I have seen pictures of it. Lovely looking place.
