Just outside the town is Ty ar Boudiged, or the Tomb of the Dwarves (!) – a covered tomb dating to c.3,000 BC. Apparently this area has been inhabited for thousands of years and there are several standing stones, dolmens, and even the remains of alignments. (Visit The Megalithic Portal for sites and information.)
