Saint Malo Street
Lane is nestled at the bottom of Recouvrance. It appears defiant. Defying because for 300 years, she has nose at balls, bombs, and the destructive folly of men who nevertheless did not spare the city.
It remains the only contemporary Brest street from Revolution.
Challenge to authoritarianism, because the history of this street reveals a seething past from which streams of characters emerge as the Belle Tamisier blaze that made the women's prison, the "Royal Refuge," an evening of Carnival in 1782.
Since November 1990, the Association "Vivre La Rue
" (Live Street) tries to give back to Brest people in search of a heritage area where roots are present festive dimensions, cultural and friendly.
