The grandeur of a small town

Questembert historical city

Questembert, a small town in the countryside, located between Vannes and Redon and 20km from the Atlantic beaches, has a remarkable heritage that makes it a must-see place for lovers of old stones and nature. It is the chestnut tree that gave its name to the town but it is its magnificent 16th century Halles that have become its symbol.

Let yourself be surprised by

the richness of our heritage

Les Halles de Questembert

The emblematic monument

Built in 1552 on the site of the old Cohue, they are due to Jérôme De Carné, Count of Cohignac and creator of the Foires de Questembert. They have been classified as Monuments Historiques since 1922.

The History of the Halles

Other remarkable monuments

Historic monuments, fountains and washhouses

Questembert’s heritage is not limited to Les Halles. Also discover:

  • The Hostellerie Le Guennego one of the oldest houses in Questembert which now houses the Tourist Office,
  • the Hotel Belmont with its original tower housing “Questembert and his wife”
  • The Chapelle Saint-Michel as well as the historiated cross with panels from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and the yew tree (several hundred years old) that accompany it form a group classified as Monuments Historiques.

By taking paths, cross streets and sunken lanes you can discover a more discreet heritage that participates just as much in the charm of the commune: fountains, washhouses, calvaries, craftsmen’s houses…

Without forgetting the Lançay’s Mill, a water mill from the 14th-XXIst centuries, listed as a Historic Monument.
