His chapels

On your journey, do not miss the Chapelle de Bon Réconfort, dating at least from the seventeenth century and housing a magnificent polychrome Christ on the cross, classified as a Monuments Historiques.

Not to mention the Chapelle Notre Dame de Cartudo, which also dates from the seventeenth century. It has a rectangular shape of fairly large size with very few openings. The triangular shape of the bell tower is more worked than in most chapels and topped by a cross. The fountain is located below. A date is engraved: 1776.

The Pluherlin slate quarries

Located in the communes of Pluherlin, Malansac and Rochefort-en-Terre, the Grées are schist hills. This flaky rock has been used for a long time. The intensive exploitation lasted from 1878 to the 1st World War. On Pluherlin, perpendicular to the river, a whole network of galleries communicating with each other was built in the rock. The quarries occupied up to 300 workers… Slate is very present in the local habitat: wall rubble, roofing slates, fencing palis on the edge of fields or paths.
