Small Breton village located in the heart of Morbihan, Sainte-Brigitte takes place in the country of Kost ar c'hoad, near the Quénécan forest. Considered one of the least densely populated municipalities of the department, it is also one of the most wooded. It is located not far from Pontivy, about seventy kilometers from the fortified city of Vannes.
Formerly a small property of the parish of Cléguérec, Sainte-Brigitte develops in the course of the twelfth century with the construction of its castle. From that time, the town is known for its manufacture of iron, and for its forges fueled by the many forests around. This industrial activity will last until the end of the 19th century.
Today, Sainte-Brigitte is especially appreciated for its natural charm, with the presence of a most pleasant green heritage.
