Broceliande, Brittany

2.8
#15 of 18 in Nature in Brittany
Visit the legendary Broceliande that has ties with Arthurian Romance, most notably a magical fountain and the tomb of the legendary figure Merlin. The forest first appears in 1160 literature--such as the "Roman de Rou," a verse chronicle written by Wace--and is legendary because of its uncertain location and unusual weather. Walk a few steps from the tomb to visit the Fountain of Youth, and then go to the Valley of No Return to view the Fairies' Mirror and The Golden Tree.

    Since little, we hear all of the famous forest of Brocéliande... But what a disappointment! These are just myths & legends which end from entering the forest. Apart from the two great majestic Oaks, the rest of the forest is not exceptional. What about the barely marked path? Many of searching in vain for our way to find sites to see... Fortunately that between walkers we help to find us... all of the courses is left abandoned. Nothing is done to make rides fun and rich in history! The tomb of Merlin is finally two poor rocks on the ground, without any explanation to the site directly (but well meters earlier). The fountain of youth, didn't even "water" to represent at least what she could represent formerly... However the val without return is a very nice but hard 4kms, and complicated without walking shoes or basketball. Abandon family with stroller, we must be able to climb... but the view is worth the detour. NOTE: There also no trash in this corner of Brittany that I find deplorable. Everybody don't get its waste... who hang out so on the floor in some places. THE more: I enjoyed the menhirs of Monteneuf late in the day, course 1, 5kms in my memories, and very well marked, and interactive. Recommend family! In short, there are better in Britain to do like PLOUMANACH and its pink Granites!

    We came to discover a beautiful mythical forest and make pictures... places of legend seem perfectly banal... and for the photos in the forest of Paimpont... everything is private! In addition to highways trails where tourists are referred, everything is inaccessible: "private forest" signs, barriers, fences, barbed wire, guards,... awareness for the Arthurian dreamer... large landowners of today '... sharer not at all...

    more than 1000km to go and see the tomb of merlin, which is a real dechetrie.banane, tomato, sweet corn, piece of wood etc... No maintenance by the town to keep the cleaner the mythe.et next, the fountain of youth which is a humbug, littered stacking of stone with lots of small pieces of paper to wishes of all the touristes.que tree of gold without explanation if you say not before potash, don't they teach you anything about these sites.honte in this county that takes tourists for fools. .. .in fact they may be right. Dismal
