Famous trees and legends
The Forest of Brocéliande
Brocéliande, Brittany’s largest forest, is a real paradise for ramblers and nature lovers. Some of the trees, such as Guillotin’s Oak, the chestnut tree at the Pas aux Biches and Ponthus’s Beech, are huge and awe-inspiring . The forest has a reputation for magic: fairies and ‘korrigans’ (little Breton leprechauns) are said to be found here. Brocéliande is also steeped in the legend of Merlin the Wizard and Viviane, the Lady of the Lake.
