Located at the entrance of the peninsula of Rhuys, in Morbihan, Ambon is a Breton municipality. It takes place about twenty kilometers from Vannes and is part of the intercommunion Arc Sud Bretagne.
The small seaside resort was born around the 9th century, with the appearance of its parish. Extensive in the Middle Ages, it reached its peak between the sixteenth and seventeenth century. Its port of Pénerf is at the time considered the fourth of Brittany. At this time, Ambon is mainly focused on agriculture, fishing, but also the activities of weaver and draper. The arrival of the railway in the early twentieth century allows the town to experience a new boom.
Today, Ambon is an important tourist site of the department, revealing an interesting architectural heritage, and seducing lovers of gastronomy through its specialties of cakes, apple juice or mussels.
