  • The name of the town of Ploërdut in Morbihan comes from the association of "plou", that is to say "parish" and Idult, great Welsh Saint. Its territory abounds in manors, noble houses, chapels ... In the town of Ploërdut, the town hall, formerly presbytery, manors and stone houses fully justify obtaining the label "municipalities of rural heritage in Brittany". A circuit with explanatory panels allows you to discover the different uses of these buildings. The interior of the Saint-Pierre church represents one of the rare examples of Romanesque art in Brittany. In the village of Crénénan, the Notre-Dame chapel is surrounded by astonishing constructions that are supposed to be cellars for drinks. In Locuon, formerly a truce in Ploërdut, the Notre-Dame de la Fosse chapel is built in an old Gallo-Roman quarry whose extracted blocks were used for the construction of Vorgium (Carhaix). Closer to home, history retains that in the 19th century, the school included among its teachers a granddaughter of Napoleon. His father, Count Leon, was the son of the Emperor. Today, with its shops, services and numerous tourist accommodation, Ploërdut is a town where you can feel good!
