St Malo

St. Malo, a fortified seaport in Brittany, at the mouth of the Rance, in the department of Ille-et-Vilaine, 42 miles N. by W. of Rennes. It is built in the form of an amphitheatre on a rocky island connected by a causeway with the mainland. The harbour, which is safe but difficult of access, is dry at low water, but at spring tides it has a depth of 45 or 50 feet. St. Malo carries on a large trade, mainly with Great Britain, the chief exports being butter, eggs, potatoes, buckwheat, barley, and fruit.
