Focus: - Tomb of the Comtesse de Ségur. The Russian-born writer, born Sophie Rospochine, was a regular visitor to Château de Kermadio, especially towards the end of her life. She died in 1874 and is buried in the Pluneret cemetery, next to her son. - On the embankments, trees and shrubs (elder, hawthorn, blackthorn, wild pear) were planted according to need: firewood, fodder, food. They create a natural barrier for crops and livestock. - To the north of Kervingu, in a field, the Kervingu Dolmen bears witness to over 4,000 years of occupation.
