This is for the lovers of dances, from Salsa to kontuno to zumba, with Salsa the queen of the place. also, Bachata and Zouk; You have dance lessons and nightclub style dances all nights from 20h to 02h
I was there briefly to see the inside decoration and the talk about the principles, who enthusiastically show me the place. A place to stay in hot in the summer and cold evenings of winter.
something to stay a bit longer in Lorient.
The name An Orient is Lorient in Breton language.
Dress Code: dress to kill for evenings and properly for dance lessons

An old church from the 19C and now completely renovated since 2000 in a modern outlook right in the old section of Lorient. Unique at 1 Rue Turenne 56100 Lorient
a solemn church in the trouble history of Lorient, a city that saw its population go from 15 000 to 300 in WWII!!!
well I am football and now in the area this is the closest to me first division in France, humble club but with a huge hard local following.
games are played at Stade Yves Allainmat since 1959.capacity for 18 500 spectators
