  • Beautiful Museum located next to the Town Hall. You can get lost for a while and admire beautiful paintings. It offers a very wide variety of works. It is always a pleasure to go back

  • one of the main subjects of this Museum, in addition to the prehistoric remains of the region, is the legend of the submergence of the city of Ys from the daughter of the King Gradlon, which gave the keys of the city to the devil.

  • You could spend a lot of time because everything is interesting; the temporary exhibitions like the others. Some expos are following those in paris and so no need to go to the capital, which is very significant.
