The Oyster Washers of Cancale.

In front of St Meen Church in the main square of the old town there is a rather charming bronze fountain. The sculptor was a Breton - Jean Fréour (1919 -2010).



Cancale is a town on the northern coast of Brittany to the east of Saint Malo.
The town has built a reputation due to the oyster beds that are along the coast and round the harbor at Cancale and is best known as being the oyster capital of Brittany. Cancale oysters have been famous for at least 2000 years since the days when they were eaten by the soldiers of Julius Caesar and later when they were delivered daily to Louis XIV.

Cancale oysters are thought to be some of the best available. In 1994 Cancale was classified as a town remarkable for the taste of its oysters.

Cancale Market visited was on Sunday midday.
