With an area of 6,878 km�, the d�partement
of C�tes-d'Armor is located in the r�gion of Bretagne.
The pr�fecture is Saint-Brieuc
and the sous-pr�fectures are Dinan, Guingamp and Lannion.
Neighbouring departments are Finist�re,
Ille-et-Vilaine and Morbihan.
Initially named C�tes-du-Nord (Northern-Coasts), due to its
geographical situation in Brittany, the department changed its name in the 1990s; when it
was thought that 'Northern' could limit tourism.
The French-Breton hybrid name of C�tes-d'Armor was chosen; as in
Breton, Armor means the sea.
