(French pronunciation: ​[sɛ̃.ma.lo]; Gallo : Saent-Malô; Breton: Sant-Maloù) is a historic walled port city and commune (with the commune expanded beyond the walls in 1968), in Brittany
on the English Channel
English Channel
coastline of northwestern France. It is a subprefecture of the Ille-et-Vilaine. Traditionally known for its independent streak, Saint-Malo
was in the past notorious for privateering (the "cité corsaire"). Today the city is a major tourist destination, with many ancient structures.

Population[edit] The population, in 2012, was 44,620 – though this can increase to up to 200,000 in the summer tourist season. With the suburbs included, the metropolitan area's population is approximately 153,000 (2011). The population of the commune more than doubled in 1968 with the merging of three communes: Saint-Malo, Saint-Servan
(population 14,963 in 1962) and Paramé
(population 8,811 in 1962). Inhabitants of Saint-Malo
are called Malouins in French. From this came the Spanish name for the Islas Malvinas, the archipelago known in English as the Falkland Islands. Islas Malvinas derives from the 1764 name Îles Malouines, given to the islands by French explorer Louis-Antoine de Bougainville.[1] Bougainville, who founded the archipelago's first settlement, named the islands after the inhabitants of Saint-Malo, the point of departure for his ships and colonists.[1] History[edit]

Old map of Saint-Malo

Founded by Gauls in the 1st century B.C. The ancient town on the site of Saint-Malo
was known as the Roman Reginca or Aletum. By the late 4th century AD the Saint-Servan
district was the site of a major Saxon Shore promontory fort that protected the Rance river estuary from seaborne raiders from beyond the frontiers. According to the Notitia Dignitatum the fort was garrisoned by the militum Martensium under a dux (commander) of the Tractus Armoricanus and Nervicanus section of the litus Saxonicum. During the decline of the Western Roman Empire Armorica (modern day Brittany) rebelled from Roman rule under the Bagaudae and in the 5th and 6th centuries received many Celtic Britons fleeing instability across the Channel. The modern Saint-Malo
traces its origins to a monastic settlement founded by Saint Aaron
Saint Aaron
and Saint Brendan early in the sixth century. Its name is derived from a man said to have been a follower of Brendan the Navigator, Saint Malo or Maclou, an immigrant from what is now Wales. Saint-Malo
is the setting of Marie de France's poem "Laustic," an 11th-century love story. The city had a tradition of asserting its autonomy in dealings with the French authorities and even with the local Breton authorities. From 1590 to 1593, Saint-Malo
declared itself to be an independent republic, taking the motto "not French, not Breton, but Malouin."[2] Saint-Malo
became notorious as the home of the corsairs, French privateers and sometimes pirates. In the 19th century, this "piratical" notoriety was portrayed in Jean Richepin's play Le flibustier and in César Cui's eponymous opera. The corsairs of Saint-Malo
not only forced English ships passing up the Channel to pay tribute, but also brought wealth from further afield. Jacques Cartier, who sailed the Saint Lawrence River
Saint Lawrence River
and visited the sites of Quebec City and Montreal, and is thus credited as the discoverer of Canada, lived in and sailed from Saint-Malo, as did the first colonists to settle the Falkland Islands, hence the Islands' French name "Îles Malouines," which eventually gave rise to the Spanish name "Islas Malvinas." In 1758, the Raid on St Malo
Raid on St Malo
saw a British expedition land intending to capture the town. However, the British made no attempt on Saint-Malo, and instead occupied the nearby town of Saint-Servan, where they destroyed 30 privateers before departing. In World War II, during fighting in late August and early September 1944, the historic walled city of Saint-Malo
was almost totally destroyed by American shelling and bombing as well as British naval gunfire.[3][4] The Allies believed that the Axis powers
Axis powers
had thousands of troops and major armaments built up within the city walls – though there proved to be fewer than 100 troops manning just two anti-aircraft installations, with the much larger and heavily armed Axis presence in strongpoints outside the city walls.[5] The Americans used napalm for the first time.[6] Saint-Malo
was rebuilt over a 12-year period from 1948–60. The commune of Saint-Servan
was merged, together with Paramé, and became the commune of Saint-Malo
in 1967. Saint-Malo
was the site of an Anglo-French summit in 1998 that led to a significant agreement regarding European defence policy. Climate[edit]
