This pleasant walk offers a magnificent view of the Auray river and the rural heart of the commune, through fields and woods. Departure point: Place Le Mené, opposite the town hall, follow signs for Le Tourbillon, then the D28 towards Kerfacile to the junction with the Roman road.

Step by step

1) Take the Roman road to Kerguinouret, follow the VC201 for 200 m before turning off towards Penhouët, then drive to Lomarec with its superb view over the Auray river. In Roman times, an aqueduct spanned the river between Crac'h and Pluneret. The red buoy in the river marks the site of the remains of this monument.

2) In Lomarec, visit the early 17th-century Chapelle, which features a Merovingian granite sarcophagus with the following inscriptions: I R H A E M A +INRI. The church honors the apostle Saint André, who was said to have the power to cure whooping cough, no doubt because his name has a certain homonymy with the Breton word "an drew" or "an driu", which designates this illness. Outside, 50 m from the chapel, see the twin fountains (wetland).

3) At the D28, the crossing is safe. Go up through the village of Kerdavid, passing by the oldest tree in the commune: a three-hundred-year-old chestnut tree, listed as one of Brittany's remarkable trees.

4) At the end of the village, 100 m further on, take the signposted path to Kerfourchard, then Kerdolmen and Kervive. See the fountain and the Kervive menhir, erected in the Neolithic period (7,000 to 4,500 years BC).

5) Follow signs for Kersinge, then Le Lerré and Kerbiscam through the Crac'hoise countryside. See the Kerbiscam cross. This tall cross is set back on the moor not far from the road. It is located on the old road linking Kéricard to Kerbiscam.

6) Head towards the town center, skirting the villages of Kéricart and Petit Cosquer.
