Around Houat Island (Morbihan)


Houat Island has been inhabited for over 6,000 years, as evidenced by the many archaeological remains that have been discovered there. In the Middle Ages, the island was an important fishing and trading port. It is also a place of pilgrimage, notably due to the presence of the Saint-Gildas chapel, built in the 11th century. The island is formed by a granite plateau that is 3.3 km long and 1.5 km wide at its widest point. At its western end, the island is extended by a granite causeway called "Chaussee du Beniguet", separated from the island by a narrow channel. The island has been classified as a nature reserve since 1972.
