CARHAIX

The town of Carhaix, with nearly 8,000 inhabitants, is a well-known economic and touristic centre. Located in the heart of Brittany, the capital of Poher (which means "pretty country" in Breton) enjoys a strategic position less than an hour away from major cities.

Founded more than 2000 years ago by the Romans, and formerly known as Vorgium, Carhaix is one of the oldest cities in the west. To share the towns story, Poher has just opened Vorgium, which uses exhibitions and augmented reality to bring to life Carhaixs unique and long historywww.vorgium.bzh).

Carhaix is known in France and Europe thanks to the Vieilles Charrues, which will take place from July 18 to 21, 2019. With 280,000 attendees and 7,000 volunteers, the festival remains the largest in France.

Throughout the year, Carhaix also hosts many other cultural events, such as the street art festival In Cit at the end of June, Bagadas (the bagado contest) in July, the Brittany book festival at end of October and Brittany in Scene in February.

Known for its cycling, Carhaix inaugurated in July 2018 the statues of the four winners of the Tour de France from Brittany. This work is part of a larger project which celebrates famous Bretons, creating a heritage and cultural trail in the town centre. For those who love cycling, the region is a paradise, with Greenways 6 and 7, the Vloroute No. 1 and the Vlodysse, connecting Great Britain to the Basque Country.

With its three-star municipal campsite, its Espace Glenmor congress center, its Plijadour water park and many other facilities, Carhaix has plenty for visitors to discover. Come discover the conviviality in the heart of Brittany! Welcome to Carhaix! Or as we say in Brittany, Degemer mad e Karaez!
