Sculpture Park Of Kerguehennec Manor :
The Domaine de Kerguehennec estate, 12 miles north of Vannes, in southern Brittany, has been the property of the departement of Morbihan since 1972.
The 430-acre grounds of the estate, laid out in 1872 by the landscape gardener Denis Biihler (who, with his brother, designed the Tete d'or gardens in Lyons, and the Thabor gardens in Rennes), surround a majestic courtyard formed by the castle and its outbuildings, all listed historic monuments, commissioned in 1710 from Olivier Delourme, architect of the St. Patern church in Vannes.
The sculpture park, a rare French example of the genre, is one of the largest in Europe. It was created in 1986 by the Ministry of Culture and the Brittany Regional Contemporary Art Collection [FRAC], and boasts some 20 works by major artists, commissioned either by the government or the FRAC, and various pieces on loan.
