Lorient Is a metropolis and seaport in the Morbihan branch of Brittany in North-Western France. Beginning around 3000 BC, settlements in place of Lorient are attested by way of the presence of megalithic architecture. Ruins of Roman roads linking Vanes to Quimper and Port-Louis to CarMax verify Gallo-Roman presence. In 1664, Jean-Baptist Colbert founded the French East Indies Company In June 1666, an ordinance of Louis XIV granted lands of Port-Louis to the organization, along with Faouedic on the opposite side of the roadstead.
One of its administrators, Denis Lingoes, bought lands at the confluence of the Scoff and the Blauvelt rivers, and constructed slipways. At first, it only served as a subsidiary of Port-Louis, in which workplaces and warehouses have been positioned. Lorient South Brittany Airport is located simply west of the metropolis at Luann Bijou, and it has direct flights to Paris. There also are direct flights to London and Porto inside the summer. The Glare de Lorient is the railway station, supplying connections to Quimper, Nantes, Rennes, Paris much less than three hours by TGV and several regional locations.
