The Côtes d'Armor is first and foremost an emblematic place. Thanks to its central position, the department is the ideal destination to discover Brittany. From the various ports scattered along the Breton coast, discover the Grand Site de France Cap d'Erquy - Cap Fréhel and the Bay of Saint-Brieuc. The Pink Granite Coast and the island of Bréhat are of course must-see sites. To discover the Breton history, a stopover is mandatory in Dinan, the medieval city. Finally, the Breton coast does not have the monopoly of attractiveness in Northern Brittany. Indeed, the Valley of Saints and the lake of Guerlédan will plunge you into the myths and legends of Brittany.
Near Perros Guirec, many destinations are not to be missed. A visit to Lannion is a must and starts with the majestic Brélévenez church which overlooks the town from the top of its 140 steps. Just go down this staircase to return to the historic districts of the town. At the bend in the streets, squares and cobbled alleys, the town reveals its traditional houses, its timber-framed houses located on the Place du Centre at the corner of the rue des Chapeliers, the Sainte-Anne monastery which has become a media library and the Ursuline Convent.
A little further on, the Parc du Radôme in Pleumeur-Bodou offers you a park and its 3 universes: the Gaulish Village (peacefully established in the heart of a green valley crossed by a stream), the Cité des Télécoms (built on the birthplace of the first international transmissions, in the heart of an 11-hectare park) and the Planetarium of Brittany, which takes you on a journey of discovery of the planets, satellites, stars, galaxies and much more!
Finally, for an enchanting walk, head for the valley of Traouïéro in the heart of a forest of chestnut, oak and hazelnut trees. The Traouïéro, a Breton word meaning "the valleys", has always been a natural refuge for various characters, real or fictional, and remains a magical universe with the house of the Korrigans, the Auge du Lépreux, the Trou de l'Enfer and its caves.
The botanical interest of these gorges lies mainly in the presence of some rare species of ferns, mosses and plants that develop thanks to the original microclimates of granite chaos.
