Region: History  

Rich in local history, Brittany is proud of its ageless megaliths, stone houses with slate roofs, medieval wayside crosses, and tiny chapels.

Very close to their Welsh, Irish, and Cornwall cousins, the Bretons make the distinction between their own character and that of the rest of France, in fact, in the olden days it was independent of France, and protected its identity behind a language and culture all its own.. The heart of Brittany is covered with Brocéliande forest, home of Merlin and legend of Arthur.

Throughout August, Lorient reaffirms its Celtic heritage by hosting the renowned Festival Interceltique.
