The richness and diversity of the natural environments of the Gulf of Morbihan have led populations to develop, since prehistoric times, coastal activities which have nourished the identities of this territory. Its very indented coasts, estuaries, rivers and abers have favoured the creation of specific coastal installations to take advantage of the sea: tide mills, salt marshes, fish traps, ports, oyster farms, shipyards, etc. To improve knowledge of this coastal maritime heritage and to support reflection on its future management, an inventory, led by the PNRGM, in partnership with Brittany Region, was initiated in 2017. In 2018, this inventory is part of the European PERICLES project (www.pericles-heritage.eu/) which works for the preservation and sustainable management of maritime cultural and landscape heritage.
This autumn, PNRGM is offering a series of talks on the inventory of maritime built heritage to be conducted in 2019 in the coastal municipalities of Crac’h, Pluneret, Plougoumelen, Le Bono and Baden (corresponding to the DEMO B2).
Open to all, these talks are an opportunity to present PERICLES, to discuss the elements of maritime heritage identified and to consider their future.
