  • The origin of the name of the commune remains partially unknown. If we know that "gwik" meaning "village" comes from Breton, we do not know the meaning of the word "scriff". Maybe it's a person's name? The church of St. Paul and St. Peter has interesting sandpits where human heads, foliage and fabulous animals are carved at regular intervals. It also shelters a curious lectern: a man in Breton costume terrace two devils holding a biniou and a bottle symbols of bad habits and drunkenness. The town is crossed by the green way that connects Rosporden with Roscoff. The old station which borders it has been rehabilitated in museum space. If the train does not pass, the walkers can, however, stop there to discover the scenography that evokes the epic of the railway network in Brittany in the Land of King Morvan. They can also take a break from their coffee. Numerous animations are proposed all the year. The municipality also has an aerodrome of business, tourism and leisure.
