At the crossroads of the Blavet and the Nantes-Brest canal, the Pays de Pontivy area is a pretty mix of hills, valleys, plains and rivers. Whether it's the remarkable heritage of the area or its well-preserved natural beauty, guided visits are available to discover its numerous treasures.
Capital of the Duchy of Rohan, Pontivy managed to attract the attention of Napoleon, who created a new town there, with wide roads and a strategic canal. Interpretive guide booklets for children are available to download for a better understanding of the town's history and of 'Napoléonville'. If you want to continue exploring the area, a variety of guided tours are available to different places. In just 2 or 3 hours, you'll come across the villages and towns around Pontivy, where you can stop to admire the architecture of some of the remarkable chapels that are dotted through the countryside, and then finish off your trip with a visit to one of the many artists or local producers in the area. This is a perfect opportunity to try out some delicious local specialities! A shorter circuit, specially for children, is also available.
