Blockfield at the forest of Huelgoat. It is a vast national forest of 1,147 hectares which developed mainly on granitic terrains between 80 and 210 meters above sea level, mostly on the steep slopes of the Rivière d'Argent (Silver River) and its tributaries. It is a remnant of the ancient forest of Brocéliande.

"Excalibur, the legendary sword of King Arthur, reputedly unbreakable and capable of cutting through any material, is anchored at the Lac de Trémelin in Iffendic in Ille-et-Vilaine. At first sight 'Excalibur' the magic weapon of Arthur, the legendary king is sealed in the rock near the lake of Tremelin, in the forest of Broceliande in Ille-et-Vilaine near Rennes. First of all, it must be said that 'Excalibur' has the reputation of being unbreakable and of cutting any material. Its scabbard protects its bearer from any injury. However, two legendary traditions are in conflict, either King Arthur removes the sword from a rock in which it is embedded, or he receives this weapon from the Lady of the Lake

Now a bivouac and military exercise area, the Bois du Loup site and its castle alone reflect the eventful history of the military camp on the Coëtquidan moors. - Located in the commune of Augan, the castle of Bois du Loup (2nd of the name) was built from 1871 to 1874 by the owner of the place: Count Roland des Clos de la Fonchais (Birth: 06/10/1821 - Marriage: 27/05/1860 - Death: 20/05/1898). - His father : Adolphe des Clos de la Fonchais, captain in the 21st regiment of the line, whose family, originally from Bavaria, had settled in Brittany in the 16th century, had bought the estate of Bois du Loup in 1805. - (Work began exactly two years before the military camp was set up). The castle was destroyed by the Americans during their stay at the Coëtquidan camp from January to June 1945. The massive machine-gunning of the façade and the deliberate bombing of the south-east tower (which later collapsed and whose granite stones were used to reinforce the dyke of the Prée-neuve pond), were the subject of a film. This anti-Nazi propaganda film was shown in the schools of Ploërmel and beyond to raise awareness about the alleged German exactions in the region in general and on the local heritage in particular, during the occupation of the camp.
