Old historic places

Ancient historical sites: Motten-Morvan feudal motte and Castel-Finans Protohistoric Camp

 

The feudal motte of Motten-Morvan is established at the Corboulo, site where the Templars would have been established. (Classified Historical Monuments 1995).

The site of the feudal motte is currently being studied and cleaned. The blog of timilin allows to follow the evolution of the site.

 


Protohistoric Camp of Castel-Finans (Classified Historic Monuments in 1971).

This site remarkable for its location overlooking the dam of Guerlédan (the Blavet at the time) was one of the residences of Conomor, powerful lord reigning over a large part of Brittany in VI century.

 This lord is renowned for his authoritarianism and the legend lends him a certain brutality, especially towards his wife Tréphine and his son Trémeur, whose competition he feared. It seems that he ended up passing them through the arms, after multiple threats and mistreatment. What earned them the recognition of holiness.

 Today only a stone belt around the site of about 4 hectares remains visible. The constructions of the period (even those of the powerful ones) were still built of wood.

 

A book by Gilles Rihouay dealing with Conomor and Castel-Finans is published by Éditions des Montagnes Noires.
