EVENTS TO 30 SEPTEMBER...
Tuesday 17 September
A follow up of the Guided Tour
In February Local historian Pierre
le Dour gave AIKB members a guided tour of Gouarec. It was very popular
and he had so much to tell that it needs completing with all the things
he didn’t have time for. Gouarec has been on the map since the 10th century.
The town later became a de Rohan stronghold. Though a market town, it was
attached to Plouguernevel until the parish church was built in the early
nineteenth century. Complete your discovery including the quartier Saint
Gilles, admire its typical 17th century façades in schist and learn
about some of its famous inhabitants.
Meet at the Train Station opposite
the Garage Martin at 2.30pm. Members 2€, Guests 5€.
