Brittany is a popular tourist destination among holidaymakers from Britain and elsewhere, and given the vast array of attractions, it is easy to see why.

As well as being home to an impressive collection of beaches, the region is also notable for its broadvariety of historic sites, some of which rank among the most interesting in France.

Here, we're going to provide a brief breakdown of some, though by no means all, of the most historic sites in this region.

Fort La Latte

Located in a truly impressive setting, Fort La Latte has appeared in a number of films over the decades and is definitely worth visiting if you're on a camping holiday in France.

It is probably best known as the site where Tony Curtis and Kirk Douglas battled it out in the film 'The Vikings'.

As much anything else, though, it is just a great location to take a few memorable holiday snaps.

Chateau de Suscinio

If you're a looking for a family day out that is a fusion of nature and culture, then this may be the perfect destination for you.

This impressive-looking fortress was once the residence of the Dukes of Brittany and there are guided tours available that will give you a better understanding of the historic importance of the landmark.

What's more, the site hosts an array of entertainment events throughout the year, including theatrical performances, as well as music and dance.

Saint-Malo's national fort

Not only is the fort an incredibly impressive structure to admire from a distance, but it also doubles as a functioning museum.

A free educational booklet is provided to children, who will surely be keen to learn more about this historic landmark.

For adults, meanwhile, there is the chance to capture some impressive shots from inside and outside the fort.
