At the heart of Brittany, the Arrée Mountains are the highest point in Finistère, which they separate in two. They include the municipalities of Berrien, Bolazec, Huelgoat, Locmaria-Berrien and Scrignac.
Le Roc'h Ruz, at 385 metres in altitude, is the highest point of these small mountains, a territory of wild landscapes that is part of the Armorique Regional Nature Park.
Peat bogs, moors, lakes, rivers, hollow paths and rocky ridges make it a paradise for wild plants such as heather, broom and gorse. In this ideal environment, Montagu's harriers, ermines, Eurasian hobbies and beavers abound.
This natural territory contains some superb parish closes and pretty chapels: the 17th-century Chapel of St. Michael of Brasparts, perched on top of Mount Saint-Michel de Brasparts; the parish close of Sizun and that of Pleyben, around the Church of St. Germain; the Baroque altarpieces of Commana Church, which includes the 15th and 16th-century parish close, one of the most beautiful in Brittany.
The Cragou rocks, surrounded by moors and peat bogs, will appeal to lovers of natural areas untouched by human intervention.
