Château de la Briantais

Saint-Malo, France

The first manor on the site was built in 1666 by the Pointel family. Today the ruins of this original manor are still visible. The current Château de la Briantais was built by Eugene Sully-Brunet between 1850-1864. Today it is owned by the city of Saint-Malo and used for concerts and other events. The 27-hectares park is worth of seeing, including a chapel from 1778.

Se ressourcer aux pieds des arbres centenaires, savourer l'éclat du soleil d'automne sur les feuilles orangées, voir la Rance souligner de bleu l'horizon de ce parc, apercevoir Solidor qui veille au loin... une belle pause dans ce parc qui a su préserver les courbes de Dame Nature! Pour les amoureux des beaux espaces!

Lovely park on the edge of saint-malo, ideal for an hour or so's stroll.

This is a lovely spot. Walk through and get gorgeous views of the Rance. An oasis of calm.

Frösö Runestone

Frösöstenen is the northern-most raised runestone in the world and Jämtland's only runestone. It originally stood at the tip of ferry terminal on the sound between the island of Frösön and Östersund. The stone dates to between 1030 and 1050. It has now been relocated to the lawn in front of the local county seat due to the construction of a new bridge, between 1969 and 1971, on the original site.

Frösö runestone inscription means: Austmaðr, Guðfastr's son, had this stone raised and this bridge built and Christianized Jämtland. Ásbjörn built the bridge. Trjónn and Steinn carved these runes.
