In the town you can visit the boat museum, the Monday markets and, above all, the magnificent Saint-Sauveur Abbey. From Redon, you can head in all directions: west to the land of Merlin the magician and Viviane the fairy, to La Gacilla, a town surrounded by moss paths and moors, andto the stunning castle of Josselin, whose 600-year-old towers reflect majestically on the water.
