We invite you to see the wonderful photos of Gouren by Jean Paul Menou.
Gouren became a popular sport in the Middle Ages. It was mainly practised by peasants, even if some priests also practised it. Breton lords learned it and also had some champions who fought for them. During festivals the nobles could fight each other using their champions, it was sometimes a way to solve conflicts.
