Focus:
• Tomb of the Countess of Ségur. The writer, of Russian origin, born Sophie Rospochine, regularly stayed at the Château de Kermadio, especially at the end of her life. Died in 1874, she rests in the cemetery of Pluneret, near her son.
• On the embankments, trees and shrubs (elderberry, hawthorn, blackthorn, wild pear) were planted as needed:firewood and lumber, fodder, food intake. They create a natural barrier for crops and livestock.
• To the north of Kervingu, in a field, the Dolmen of Kervingu testifies to the occupation of the territory for more than 4,000 years.
