the castle

wonderful inland Morbihan in Brittany, this is a castle once owned by an American family from Baltimore who supported many painters here, then it became property of the regionalgovernment. Lots of paintings from the family and exhibitions by others still held.

The town is wonderful to walk with many cobblestone,quaint shops and nice foodie restos. A must to see in inland Morbihan, the rest of the photos are personal but I hope you see it as an enticement to come and visit
