Overview
More
Ancien village sidérurgique breton inscrit dans la forêt de Paimpont, devenu patrimoine industriel. Le hameau situé en contrebas de l'étang des Forges*, s'organise autour de deux ensembles de bâtiments composant la vie sociale et industrielle des forges, témoignage de l'activité métallurgique qui s'y est déroulée de 1653 à 1954. Le laminoir restauré permet l'organisation de manifestations tout au long de l'année. L'ensemble du site est inscrit monument historique. Vous découvrirez, le fonctionnement des Forges au travers des 4 maquettes au 1/30 qui présentent l'outillage et les machines disparus. * l'étang des Forges sera à son niveau le plus bas en 2016 du fait de travaux importants engagés sur la digue à partir du mois de septembre 2016.

Visiting this place, you can imagine how the metallurgic production was organized there and why the forest was so useful...
