More curiosities of Guer !

And coming back at you with another off the beaten path gem of my beautiful Morbihan. This Guer has lots of architecture and history in it, and you can see my previous posts on it. However, new passing, new pictures and a new post on more curiosities of Guer ! Hope you enjoy the post as I.

The town of Guer includes four subdivisions such as Guer-Coëtquidan, Saint-Raoul, La Telhaie and Bellevue-Coëtquidan where you will find the military schools of Saint-Cyr-Coëtquidan, (see post) located straddling the neighboring town of Saint-Malo-de –Beignon (see post). The town, also, borders on the forest of Brocéliande, where the legend of Merlin the magician, the fairy Morgane and the fairy Viviane is woven.

A bit on the town and city hall or mairie of Guer.  In 1795, the district was abolished and Guer became the capital of the municipality of the canton of Guer, made up of representatives of the towns of Guer and Monteneuf. In 1800, the municipal assembly was restored and Guer was integrated into the district of Ploërmel In 1801, it retained its status as chief town of the canton , maintained in 2014 delimiting the cantons in Morbihan . Since the abolition of the arrondissement of Ploërmel in 1926, Guer has been part of the arrondissement of Vannes. The current mairie or City hall was done between 1883 and 1889.
