Rochefort-en-Terre is a small town of 120 hectares and 650 inhabitants nestled in the heart of Morbihan. An important ancient medieval town built on a rocky outcrop in the 12th century, it has preserved an exceptional architectural heritage from this rich past, including the remains and ramparts of the medieval castle and the Notre-Dame de la Tronchaye church. The combination of schist and granite with flowery facades makes this Breton city special. Its charm has made Rochefort-en-Terre a true source of inspiration for local and foreign painters. To discover the castle park, the Place du Puits and its remarkable houses, the 16th century washhouse... Today the village is lively with the presence of shops, artists' and craftsmen's stalls. Rochefort-en-Terre is today an essential stopover in the Morbihan tourist landscape, but its notoriety goes far beyond the borders of the territory. The combination of the labels “Most Beautiful Villages of France”, “Small Cities of Character and Towns” and “Villages Fleuris” allows it to welcome 900,000 visitors per year.
