About Perros-Guirec

The town is known for its sand dunes and the red granite cliffs along the coast. History [ edit ] The area around Perros-Guirec has been occupied since prehistoric times, as attested by menhirs and dolmens dating from that era. Inhabitants of Perros-Guirec are called perrois in French.[1] The village was originally named "Perrous" in Breton or "Pairrus" in Gallo (both meaning "rocky place") but it was renamed to Guirec after a local saint who lived there during the 6th century AD.[2][3] During World War II, German soldiers were stationed at a fort located on Pointe du Kerbihan near Perros-Guirec; they nicknamed it Fort Blunder because of its poor strategic position overlooking Saint Brieuc Bay.[4] On June 5, 1944 American bombers attacked this fort causing many casualties among both German soldiers and civilians living nearby. This attack is described by author Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
