4.4
Saint-Cast-le-Guildo is a commune in the Côtes-d'Armor department of Brittany in northwestern France. It is port city on the English Channel as it also has a nautical center, the Centre Nautique de Saint- Cast (CNSC) ranked 3rd to 6th in the nation.PopulationInhabitants of Saint-Cast-le-Guildo are called castins in French.HistoryThe Battle of St Cast took place on September 11, 1758, where the French repelled the English. First of all, the English first attacked the region of Dinard by sea, but were stopped at the Rance by Sébastien Le Prestre de Vauban fortifications. They were forced to retreat to their fleet in front of St-Cast, where Emmanuel-Armand de Richelieu was waiting for them and launched an attack on the beach while the British were fleeing back onto their vessels. The casualties were big with the British army as they lost 1,160 soldiers when the French lost about 445 men Today there is a monument in the Bourg (neighborhood of St-Cast) showing a greyhound defeating a lion; the Castins defeating a lion (the English symbol).FoodSaint-Cast has a lot of typical food from Brittany like the Kouign-amann, or the specialty from St-Cast, le Castin, which is originally how we call people from there or in that case, the cake.
