Des Halles, painters and brigands

OuesTyBus takes you to the heart of Brittany in the Land of King Morvan. 40 km from Lorient, the Faouët, the beech grove in Breton, nestles in a hilly region. The bocage, dazzled by the gold of the ajoncs, is carved by the Ellé, a river with salmon and trout that has inspired many painters.
At the heart of the city is the real Halles commercial square, one of the last in Brittany. But on full moon nights, be careful not to disturb the ghost of Marion du Faouët.

Miracles of architecture: Sainte-Barbe and Saint-fiacre

The Sainte-Barbe chapel, built on the side of a cliff, at 178 m of altitude, on a dominant platform the Ellé, remains a jewel of Breton architecture. And Saint-fiacre, all draped in splendid adornments testifying to the flamboyant Gothic does not have to blush from his rival.
If you are single, wear a hairpin with a round head and at the Sainte-Barbe fountain you will find a husband within a year, we guarantee it!!!

 Small town of character and capital of the famous french sausage "andouille": Guéméné-Sur-Scorff

In Guéméné, a municipality labelled «Petite Cité de Caractère», you will leave to discover the remains of its castle but also of its medieval oven: the «Baths of the Queen». A stroll through the streets and alleys of the historic center will impose itself on you to discover the charm of ancient houses, worthy heirs of the Middle Ages. But we will not leave Guémené without mentioning his famous handcrafted andouille, which is still the pride of the people of Guéméné.
