The whole history of Jugon, jewel Penthièvre revolves around water. Yesterday fundamental defense, now the heart of the tourism and leisure. A stream of the city, formerly called the "Jugon" gave its name to the city.
Born in a cove, backed by a long and beautiful lake 4 km, Jugon is an oasis in the middle of a sea of greenery.
Its architectural heritage, with its granite houses and its central place, proudly recalls the past Jugon Penthièvre stronghold at the time of the Dukes of Brittany.
Do not be fooled by the quiet charm of this small town, it conceals a strategic role in the history of Britain.
Crossed by two rivers, one for the large pond (the Jugon, renamed the Rosette) and two branches of the river Arguenon Jugon has always possessed an exceptionally rich water. This is why many mills were built on these rivers (grist mill, tan to transform hides into leather), as well as fisheries. The need for water was also brought on these rivers installing multiple dyeing wool. The sheep was important in the region. A multitude of washing still flourishes along the river in the city.
