The town of Guémené sur Scorff is in my beautiful Morbihan and lovely Bretagne, Another off the beaten path place with pretty architecture of its monuments. This is a return visit and tell you about the curiosities of Guémené sur Scorff ! The town is about 43 km from my house, Hope you enjoy the post as I,

The halles were first built in 1634, and were located on what is now Place Loth. They housed the grain and flour market, the displays of sheets and linens, wholesalers and retailers alike. Sold in 1809, then acquired by the town in 1870 ; it was decided in 1923 to destroy it, safety and health being in question. Now Place des Halles,and rename Place Joseph-Loth, named after the linguist historian who was born in one of the houses there. Today, a new Halle built on rue Emile-Mazé, at the level of the intergenerational garden. With more than 100 m2, this halle will house public toilets and will offer a shaded area where some outdoor events can be organized in open air.

The Hôpital Alfred Brard hospital is located at rue Emile Mazé, A bit of history I like : The first hospital was done in 1642 and was located at rue Neuve, the hospices became very dilipated and insufficient, In 1912, thanks to deputy Alfred Brard a new hospital was done at the place call Le Belvédére ; this construction was stopped by WWI and work did not resume until 1923 ; the new hospital was completed on December 4, 1927. The new hospital in Guémené-sur-Scorff was the first modern establishment erected after WWI.  This congregation has been running the hospital since 1784 is the Congregation of the Daughters of Wisdom, whose motherhouse is located in Saint-Laurent-sur-Sèvre (Vendée 85), particularly attached to hospital services.
