A wonderful church main one in town full of history of Brittany. There is a church here since 1125AD, the dukes of Brittany were buried here such as Claude de Rieux and his wife. You can still see the symbol of the Duchy of Brittany in the ceilings of the church by the war memorial chapel side on your left facing the altar.
a must to visit while in the beautiful town
the webpage is in French, on the diocese of the church, then in contact i have the tourism office
This is a wonderful castle, forewarned it is under renovation for the whole of 2012.
However, was here couple months ago,and again yesterday. There is a castle here at least from 1374AD , wonderful place of the history of an old castle in dismay after the French revolution,and finally an American painter Alfred Klots (Baltimore MD) who bought it renovated, and allow American painters and other to come here to paint and improve their skills, the museum depicting these painting is awesome.
now is in the hands of the local department council to keep it and protected. A nice visit to plan ahead for 2013.

One of the classic in town name after guides Routard, Huchette, and Lonely Planet. It is also in a house from the 16C, with very nice decorations, unfortun the only pictures I have are personal so cant post here,my views.
However, it is strongly recommended when in town. Old world ambiance, and friendly, fast service.
Favorite Dish: galettes and crepes a la Breton, great portions very well made, and a wonderful smiling service in an old world ambiance.
great refine resto overlooking beautiful pl St Michel, and the huge parking directly across an old Breton chapel. This is best for evenings, and the food is magnificent at great prices.
one historical fact is that here the Swiss painter Marius Borgeaud did the paintings for the interiors that made him famous.
YOu wont go wrong here, very French.
Favorite Dish: here the food changes with the season, but we had fresh fish as posted, seafood is good too. We had try it once and were nicely impress by the French style cooking ::)
wonderful welcome by the chef himself, beautiful terrace overlooking the cliffs and forest below town. The place is popular with locals, and great food, right in city center on way to pl St Michel
we will return here
Favorite Dish: we had galette of ham and cheese with eggs, half cheese pizza with green salads, a bottle of local Nicol cider, and ice creams, coronel,fruitiére, and 3 scoops, all for 43 € for 3 persons. all wonderful and nicely service.
well this is inland Morbihan Brittany,so the best way is by car, that is how I come always. You get direction from Vannes on the N166 direction Rennes and get off at the D775 Questembert exit, first following direction for it, then you will see the panel for Rochefort en Terre and take the final leg on the D777. Its about a 45 minute ride normal legal speed.
Then you can take the bus from Vannes the department service TIM no 9 Vannes,Questembert, Rochefort en Terre. The schedule until June 30 2012 as in summer non school days is different
if you need for those times the department site is this one with all bus service just come back in those dates and take a look
YOu can take the train TER bretagne from Vannes to Questembert, and there take the bus No 9 to Rochefort en Terre.
Again public transport is limited here so will take you quite a bit of time, strongly suggest a rental car, at the gare or train station in Vannes you have Avis and Hertz
