Castles &
Historical monuments

Around the 18th century castle, there is a forest park and gardens, some of which are listed as Historic Monuments. The 150 hectares of gardens offer a variety of places to visit, a vegetable garden, a water mirror.... and places to relax.

Built in the 15th century. Majestic and evocative, the castle is reflected in its pond and keeps the tragic memory of the bride buried alive at the foot of its walls.
Visible from the outside only, all year round.

This castle overlooks the canal and has been the home of the Rohan family for several centuries. Its gothic style and its three imposing medieval towers, its sculpted granite facade will take you back in time.

Built in the 17th century by Pierre Hureau, a royal architect, on the site of a former stronghold destroyed during the Wars of Religion by Mercoeur's troops, the castle consists of a main building flanked by two pavilions.

Comper Castle has been the scene of many battles and sieges. A strong position in Upper Brittany, it is home to the Centre de l'Imaginaire Arthurien, which organises an exhibition every year. Tales, medieval music and shows are also on offer.

Whether you are a fan of contemporary art, botany or architecture, the castle and park of Kerguéhennec reveal their natural and cultural treasures. For more information, please contact us: click here

The Manor of Bray, a former seigneury of the parish of Sixt-sur-Aff, was erected in 1583.

Proudly standing on its rocky outcrop facing the forest of Brocéliande, this is a major medieval site in the Brocéliande region.

It was burnt down in 1903 and its neo-renaissance style will not leave you indifferent. Take a break in front of its romantic silhouette by bike or on foot.

As you wander through the ancient medieval town of Montfort, pause in front of the Chapel of St. Joseph, built to replace the former parish church of St. John, destroyed in 1851.

The town of Hédé was formed, as the saying goes, in the shadow of its castle, which is mentioned as early as the 11th century.

Small towns
of character

This small Morbihan town is located at the confluence of the Oust and the Nantes-Brest Canal. A town of character once surrounded by 900 metres of walls, only a few remains of these fortifications remain, of which the Porte Saint Michel is the emblem. 

Its history resembles those of rural communes in Brittany. Nevertheless, certain features of its granite architectural heritage give the town a small urban look which is similar to that generated by the textile prosperity in the towns.

- Museum of a Scrap Metal Poet
- Insectarium
- Painting exhibition
- The House of Clowns
- Ecomuseum of old trades and objects

One of the most beautiful "Small towns of character" in Brittany. Come and meet passionate men and women who will share their art and know-how with you.
