The headquarters of the Rennes Tourist Information Centre features three architectural creations under the same roof - a contemporary construction in the form of an ocean liner gangway, a 17th-century timber-framed house and the chapel itself, which was built in the 15th century to serve the former Hôtel-Dieu hospice. This building, now a fine example of the splendid Flamboyant Gothic architecture following extensive restoration work, hosts a permanent exhibition, "Rennes, City of Art and History" which tells the story of the Breton capital down the ages through the media of water, wood and stone.
There is also a virtual model presenting urban development from the Gallo-Roman period to the present day.
Exhibition catalogue available in various languages: French, English, German, Italian, Spanish and Breton.
