Redon is a commune in the Ille-et-Vilaine department in Brittany in northwestern France. It is a sub-prefecture of the department.GeographyRedon borders the Morbihan and Loire-Atlantique departments.It is situated at the junction of the Oust and Vilaine rivers, which makes it well known for its autumn and winter floods.HistoryVery little information exists about this area before 832, however it would seem that there was a parish by the name of Riedones which gave the town its name. In 832, Conwoion, a Breton monk with the help of the Carolingian Emperor Louis le Pieux founded the abbey of Saint-Sauveur de Redon. Today, documents relating to the life of the abbey still exist.The town developed around the abbey until a small rural community of 6,000 inhabitants was formed in the 1960s.In the Middle Ages, Redon benefited from maritime commerce due to its location on the Vilaine.PopulationInhabitants of Redon are called Redonnais in French.Breton languageThe municipality launched a linguistic plan through Ya d'ar brezhoneg on 10 October 2008.
