The Pierre Loti path

A path dedicated to the writer Pierre Loti recounts his several visits of the city. Renowned french author, he came several times in Rosporden to visit his best friend and got inspired by the Breton lifestyle. Based on his memories, he wrote the novel “My Brother Yves” in 1883. Some pannels in the city centre offer more information about the life of the writer and his beautiful friendship with a breton sailor.
