Between land and ocean
In South Brittany, the Morbihan is a territory of legend between land and sea. Its past is visible in Carnac with a collection of 3 000 megaliths predating the famous Stonehenge; its myths inspired in the forest of Brocéliande by King Arthur’s legend and its present is symbolised by the high-tech sailing valley.
Morbihan is the only French Département having a non-french name (meaning little sea in Breton language for the gulf) and its cultural identity is strong. During your trip, you may encounter the BZH as symbol of this identity. It is a shortcut for Breizh (Brittany in Breton). You will also notice the numerous black and white flags of Brittany, an heritage of the times where France and Brittany where two separate countries.
