About St-Malo

The first written records mentioning the town are in the Latin texts of ancient history. The nominative case is "Santus Malo", from which Saint-Malo derives its name; and "Malum" or "Malo" meaning 'bad' or 'evil', referring to a 6th-century saint who was martyred by invading Mercians, according to local legend. Saint-Malo is one of the settings in Victor Hugo's novel ""Les Misérables". It was also mentioned in Dan Brown's novel Digital Fortress as one of Dassault Systemes offices (the other being Guernsey). In Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, Dr. Frankenstein creates his monster near the docks on an island off Saint Malo and flees across country after creating it because he fears it will be destroyed by angry villagers when they find out what he has done.
