  • Forming the entrance to the walled town of Hennebont, the Bro Erec'h towers once served to defend this stronghold before becoming home to the museum of history and local traditions. Visitors attacking the visit today will find the medieval soldiers have been replaced by the museum's collection.

    It's worth visiting Hennebont just for the Bro Erec'h towers. The giant Meccano-style timber framework - reworked by craftsmen belonging to the 'compagnons du devoir' association, the huge chimneys, spiral staircases, and the view from the ramparts, will all take you back in time. Behind the stone walls, 10 exhibition rooms tell the history of this Breton land of legend. Accounts of battles and ducal rivalries sit side by side with furniture and fine costumes from the Morbihan area. The colourful earthenware from Quimper bears witness to refined expertise whilst other objects trace the history of more everyday living. There are also works and documents recalling the legend of Jeanne La Flamme, who saved Hennebont from the siege of Charles-de-Blois. A visit somewhere between imagination and reality.
