  • The origin of the name Plouray in Morbihan is controversial. If we refer to the oldest form of its 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 subject of a cult in the Saint-Yves church. However, if we retain the form "Plou-Wroc", as we sometimes find it, we first think of Saint Guroc. From the 13th to the 15th century, the fief of Plouray depended on the Viscounty of 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 of Plouray offers beautiful walks on the side of the remains of the Saint-Maudé chapel or on the banks of the pond of Er Lann Vras, favorable for family walks. Your steps may lead you to a place called Bel Avenir where the serenity of the Plouray Buddhist center reigns. The Dalai Lama, in person, was able to absorb it when he came in 2008. With its pond, its motorhome area and its service station, Plouray is an ideal break in the heart of Brittany.
