ARMORICAN REGIONAL PARK - Mont Saint-Michel de Brasparts

Situated in the centre of Finistère, the Monts d’Arrée are the highest and oldest hills in Brittany. Not exactly mountains in size, they nevertheless provide striking scenery, unique in the region, and perfect walking territory. Consisting of high open moorland (landes) and peat marshes (tourbières), the Monts d’Arrée run roughly east/west, forming the heart of the Armorican Regional Park. The Mont Saint-Michel de Brasparts is 380 m high. On the top there is a chapel dating from the 17th century, built on the place of a former pagan temple dedicated to the sun.
