Lorient

Situated in Brittany in north-west France, Lorient has a long-standing link to the maritime world. Back in the 16th, Lorient was part of the chain linking Europe to india, and later the French East India Company, backed by King Louis XIV, created a thriving base there. It remains a functionnal port but that, in appearance terms, is pretty much where the historical links end. Much of That port infrastructure was destroyed during World War II, with Lorient being defiantly held by the Germans until the end of the war ans as such, suffering extreme allied bombing...
In terms of attractions, Lorient is sprinkled with the usual mixture of street-side bars, cafes ans restaurants for those fond of the authentic french experience.
The region is famedfor its high quality fresh seafood, as well as its delicious crepes and local cider.
