    by gwened Written Dec 29, 2013
    Op��ra de Rennes

    This is a wonderful property in a great historical city center of Rennes, the Opéra is a masterpiece of architecture.
    Inaugurated on February 29, 1836, after its construction had started in 1832 under many problems to built it, it suffered a fire in 1856. The Opera, then called 'Photography Theater'. The façade and its roof overlooking the place de l'Hôtel de Ville, as well as the chimneys of the building of the Gallery theater, rue de Brillac and rue de Coëtquen. The opera has been restored in 1997-1998.

    a unique building that has its originality that it was included in a real estate project with housing and galleries and protected by a canopy at the back of the opera. In other originality is to adapt to the shape of the Hôtel de Ville de Rennes ,the advance of opera meets the hollow of the city hall.

    Provided with a room of 642 places, is one of the smallest of France's operas. Mainly focused on the art of Opera plays. The ceiling of the room is made by Jean-Julien Lemordant in 1914. A fresco of a lounge is attributed by Denise Delouche, the painter Camille Godet.

    Rue de la soif: Most famous street from Rennes

    by chess_machine Written Nov 28, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    La rue de la soif, literally Thirst street, is Rennes most famous street. Had heard many times about this street and went there last Friday night. Well, it is said to be really animated, which means sometimes there are also some fights. Last Friday was not animated and the bar we went to closed at 12.30am...

    Anyway, la Rue de la Soif shows hips of different bars, mainly pubs, and is located in a very animated quarter. Rennes is a student city so the nightlife is pretty good there. Most crowded nights are usually Thursday and Saturday.

    By the way, the real name of Rue de la Soif is Rue Saint Michel.

    Dress Code: Casual
