Ploërmel is a commune in the Morbihan department in Brittany in north-western France.Character of the townThe town is both modern and romantically mediaeval, and has easy access to most parts of Brittany. Ploërmel is set on the edge of the magical Broceliande forest, which legend proclaims is the home of Merlin the Magician, amongst other fantastical characters.HistoryIn 1351, during the Breton War of Succession (part of the Hundred Years' War), the town was occupied by the Montfortist faction, supported by the English. The rival French-supported Blois faction controlled nearby Josselin. Two groups of approximately 30 English and French knights staged a tournament at a spot between the two towns, to show their prowess and make money by capturing opponents. The Franco-Breton team eventually won after killing or capturing the Anglo-Breton force. This was later known as the Combat of the Thirty.In 1944, 10 Resistance fighters were killed by German soldiers. 31 inhabitants were killed, 125 wounded, by the American air raid on the railway station on June 12, during the Normandy landings.On 10 December 2006, the city unveiled an statue of Pope John Paul II. It was a gift by Russo-Georgian sculptor Zurab Tsereteli, and has sparked in controversy by liberal fascist over the separation of Church and State.
