The Plouédern trenches

Historic sites and monuments

Why take advantage?

Located in North Finistère, in a commune close to Landerneau, the Plouédern trenches are valued and maintained by the Dourdon association. In 1914, the creation of trenches in northern and eastern France led to the development of training sites for local regiments. The Plouédern site, with its 300 meters of trenches, offers an astonishing and educational insight into what a military training site was like during the First World War.

Access to the site is free, and individual visitors can visit on their own (an explanatory panel is located at the site entrance).
Guided tours for groups and schools are available all year round through the Dourdon association.
