  • The origin of the name of the commune is controversial. If one refers to the oldest form of his name, Plouré, we associate "plou" designating a parish with "Ré", that is to say René, from the name of its former patron. It is still the object of a cult in the church of Saint-Yves. However, if one retains the form "Plou-Wroc", as it is sometimes found, one thinks first of Saint Guroc. From the 13th to the 15th century, the fief of Plouray depended on the Vicomté de Rohan. At the beginning of the 16th century, it belonged to Jean de Rieux. Louis IV de Rohan inherited it in 1527. Nowadays, the town offers beautiful walks on the side of the remains of the chapel of Saint-Maudé or on the banks of the lake Er Lann Vras, favorable to family walks. Your steps may lead you to the place Bel Avenir where the serenity of the Buddhist center reigns. The Dalai Lama, in person, was able to impregnate him during his coming in 2008.
