Guiscriff

Town, village, neighbourhood at Guiscriff
  • The origin of the name of the town of Guiscriff in Morbihan remains partially unknown. If we know that "gwik" meaning "village" comes from Breton, we do not know the meaning of the word "scriff". Perhaps it is the name of a person? The church of Saint-Paul and Saint-Pierre has interesting sand pits 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...
    The origin of the name of the town of Guiscriff in Morbihan remains partially unknown. If we know that "gwik" meaning "village" comes from Breton, we do not know the meaning of the word "scriff". Perhaps it is the name of a person? The church of Saint-Paul and Saint-Pierre has interesting sand pits 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 commune of Guiscriff is crossed by the greenway n ° 7 which links Rosporden to Roscoff. The old station bordering it has been rehabilitated as a tourist entertainment area "Leisure in Guiscriff station". If the train no longer passes there, walkers or cyclists can, however, make a stop there to discover the new scenography that evokes the epic of the Breton rail network in the Land of King Morvan. They can also take a break from his coffee. Many activities are offered throughout the year including an escape game and bicycle rental. The town of Guiscriff also has an aerodrome for business, tourism and leisure.
