Long Description:
A Begard, le Colombier de Kernaudour a défié le temps et les hommes. Juché sur un promontoire qui domine la vallée du Jaudy, il a fière allure, flanqué de ses deux chênes bonzaï. Construit en granit, il a servi de base à la création du logo de la ville de Bégard. Ce colombier se situe dans le parc de Loisirs d'Armoripark. (Entrée payante)
Armoripark est installé sur l'ancien domaine médiéval de Kernaudour.
Soucieuse de mettre l'accent sur ce riche patrimoine rural, la Ville de Bégard a conservé et restauré le magnifique colombier surplombant le parc, que les connaisseurs apprécieront car il est typique de l'architecture bretonne du 17ème siècle.
Dans un passé plus récent l'ancien domaine seigneurial étant devenu une ferme, les bâtiments ont été conservés
