Famous in the history of Brittany for having been the scene of the last battle for the succession to the throne of Brittany in 1364, Auray offers a rich historical heritage.
Many historical events can be discovered through the various monuments that populate its streets and alleys.
Auray is a small picturesque town on the banks of the river Loc’h, nestled in a ria in the Gulf of Morbihan. It has preserved the charm of the medieval cities of Brittany, with its cobbled streets, its half-timbered and timber-framed houses, its beautiful mansions with dressed stone…
From the town hall, follow the rue du Château, one of the most beautiful streets in the city where artists’ stores and art galleries flourish. It will lead you to the imposing stone bridge that crosses the river. Opposite, the picturesque district of Saint-Goustan with its Saint-Sauveur square with its curved cobblestones where it is good to stroll on the beautiful terraces, in the restaurants and cafés.
The must of your stay at the Penboch campsite in Arradon: a visit to the big market of Auray, every Monday morning, where alreans and tourists are invited.
