Industrial heritage

Perhaps you thought that industrial heritage doesn’t exist in Séné? It's true that Séné, just like the rest of the Gulf of Morbihan, isn’t necessarily a historically industrial area. However, the definition of industrial heritage is broader than you think: it refers to all the ‘production processes through the extraction and processing of raw materials’ (ICOMOS-2011 definition). It therefore encompasses very old and rural constructions, such as windmills, forges, mines, etc. In Séné, this part of history can be seen in the form of wind- and watermills, and a chemical goods factory. All of these are no longer standing today, but they have left traces of their existence.
