Guerlédan Dam

Tapi au creux des collines, le Lac de Guerlédan s'étire de tout son long dans la Vallée du Blavet. Il présente à chaque méandre une facette différente de sa personnalité. Hospitalier pour les promenades et baignades en famille, il peut également être le parfait terrain de jeu pour les amateurs d’escalades, de ski-nautique et de randonnée sportive.

Barrage de Guerlédan

Barrage de Guerlédan

In the years after the First World War, electricity was a precious and rare commodity, particularly in rural areas. The construction of a 40-meter-high dam, at Guerlédan, to supply electricity to a third of Brittany, was seen as madness. It took the audacity of the sub-prefect Joseph Ratier and the force of action of the engineer Auguste Leson for the project to see the light of day. The dam, the power station and Lake Guerlédan now offer an indispensable electric supplement, at times of high consumption.
