History of Dinard

Dinard is a seaside resort town located in Brittany in northwestern France. 

Dinard’s history really starts in the 19th century, as the resort became popular with wealthy British tourists, who built magnificent villas on the coast. Dinard rapidly expanded and became one of the most popular seaside resorts in Europe.

The religious site of Dinard represents a particularly interesting heritage, which testifies to local seaside life. One of the oldest religious sites from Dinard will surely be the chapel Prieuré, an old monastery built in the 14th century was rebuilt in the 1980, the chapel was made into the Brittany style. It has very interesting floor tiles representing the ermine of Brittany and the shell of the pilgrims of Compostela.

Today, Dinard is considered as one of the most "British" of sea resorts in France, therefore there are a few protestant places of worship across the town. Such as the Anglican Saint Bartholomew's Church, the small church is welcoming everybody with services in English and providing a library with English books. 

During your spiritual journey, it is also great to stop at the priory of Dinard, you can stroll along the gardens of the priory and head to the beach. It is the perfect place to meditate and appreciate the beauty of the landscape, in an ideal historic setting with its old stones and stories from the past.
