The history of central Brittany is brought back to life every year at Bon Repos Abbey, thanks to a simply amazing 'Son et Lumières' show. Learn all about the ancient land of Conomor, from the first Roman road to the Nantes-Brest canal.
For a few evenings every summer, Bon-Repos Abbey sets the stage for a historical reconstruction of central Brittany's past, organised by the Racines d'Argoat association. The golden thread connecting the stories of ordinary and not-so-ordinary people and events from the history of the Land of Conomor is the vast array of architectural heritage in the area, of which the most representative and impressive examples are the Liscuis passage graves, the Roman road from Rennes to Carhaix, Castel Finans (Conomor's castle, built on the shores of the river Blavet), the Bon Repos Cistercian abbey and the Nantes-Brest canal. This ephemeral fresco of history is played out in the 20,000 m² grounds of the abbey, whose walls form the backdrop for this huge stage, with a Gaulish village on one side and a reconstruction of Conomor castle on the other. With the whole site turned into an outdoor theatre, the show can be seen by up to 3,000 people every night, who never fail to be impressed, surprised and delighted by this amazing event!
