In a wooded and agricultural area, the old Étel-Vannes route is undoubtedly an old Roman road: straight, located on a ridge, the line of water separation.

Departure: Take rue Nationale on the left and, at the crossroads, rue du Marché. Follow rue du Général de Gaulle on the left, and the path on the right towards Keravéon.

Step by step :

1- At Keravéon, pass under the monumental porch, walk along the central alley (overview of the moat and the facade of the castle, transformed into a residence). Enter the wood on the right, go along the Ile d'Amour. At the small gate of the estate, turn right.
At the Corn er Hoët crossroads, cross the road and take the rather straight path for 2.5 km to Saint-Laurent.
2- Opposite the chapel, follow the road to the left towards Keriscoarn and cross the village of Keroulard.
3- 300 m away, take the wide dirt road on the left then, 500 m away, cross the Le Poumen stream and enter the woods on the right. Go along the stream to the forest path, follow it in a straight line. Before reaching the road, follow the embankment to the left for 125 m.
4- Cross the road and take the path to Keroret. On the road, turn left to find the park of Keravéon and reach the monumental entrance.
5- At its exit, follow the road towards the center of Erdeven.
6- Go past the cemetery to reach the chapel of Lann Groëz (La Vraie-Croix) and the car park.

Focus:

• Castle of Keraveon. The primitive fortress (see the remains of the ramparts) probably dates from the 14th century, when the domain of Keravéon was set up as a seigniory, whose coat of arms was “a lozenge in a banner of silver and sand”.
• The communal park of Keravéon has a botanical route of more than 50 listed species of trees.
• The Bois de Coët Er Lann is owned by the Departmental Council of Morbihan.
• Village of Saint-Laurent en Ploëmel, its chapel and its fountain. The Chapel (16th century) was undoubtedly built by the lords of Talhouët-Keravéon, owners of the neighboring castle. Dedicated to Saint-Laurent, a young deacon martyred on a grill on August 10, 258 and invoked to heal burns, it is typical of its time: rectangular plan, corner buttresses weighted with flowery pinnacles, basket-handle doors, windows in a broken arch.
