Long Description:

Solidor tower was built at the end of the 14th century by the Duke of Brittany to watch the Rance estuary and the nearby town of Saint Malo.

It replaces an older building itself built on the site of a Roman fort. The tower was decommissioned in the 18th century, then transformed into a prison. It now houses a maritime museum.

Cernée par les flots, la tour Solidor a été construite à la fin du XIVe siècle par le duc de Bretagne pour surveiller l'estuaire de la Rance et la ville voisine de Saint Malo.

Elle remplace un édifice plus ancien lui même bâti sur l'emplacement d'un fortin romain. La tour a été déclassé au XVIIIe siècle, puis transformée en prison. Elle abrite aujourd'hui un musée maritime.
