Broceliande, Brittany

Categories: Forests, Nature & Parks
Inspirock Rating:
3.1/5 based on 100 reviews on the web
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.

  • We did not like, and let me explain in one word... SCAM. First we go to the tourist office or the young women were very nice and very welcoming, they have knowledgeable and it work with the center of paimpont and the only positive. We went to the Valley of no return... This clearly isn't a mall in the forest, but a stone path we cross the world, or there is tounours of the noise, and... The Golden tree... But what's that joke?! For a walk in the Woods I prefer remained at home while I was happy to discover a rather confusing nature, spirituality and legends. We had right to the commercialism of tourism. Too bad...

  • Amazing mythical forest, full of stories of fairies, goblins and Giants accompanied by the legend of King Arthur, Merlin, Morgane and Viviane fairies and the fountain of youth. The forest is very large, ideal if you are by car to make several stops in each enter the forest and thus be able to visit the most emblematic places.

  • I go 1-2 times a year in this magical place. The centre of the commune of Paimpont is very nice and you will find the tourist information office where staff are very attentive to your requests. Then walk the trails in search of the legendary fountains, the headquarters of Merlin, the Golden tree, the wonderful Church of Tréhorenteuc (Church of the Holy Grail), Oak to Guillotin... You must of course walk, walking trails, sometimes climb (ex for headquarters of Merlin but you will be rewarded, beautiful view, the impression of being outside civilization). He must keep his inner child to enjoy all these legends. It is necessary to take his car (or his bike) to go from one site to another and then walk.
