City of Dinan

Filed under: France — sensel @ 5:01 pm

And here are a couple from the walled city of Dinan, originally a Celtic fort, with an amazing amount of its half-timbered construction still intact. (Celtic fort = dun Anann, with Anann being the goddess of life and death, apparently, which sounds like a pretty important goddess to me, although I’ve never run across her name in my Irish research, so I’m wondering if she might have been favored by the Celts in Gaul and not those farther north). Lots of cobbled streets.
