Roc'han, "Petit Roc in Breton", has always been very coveted. At the beginning of the eleventh century, Alain de Rohan settled on the course of the Oust to install a fortress on the Viscount Porhoët border post Rohan which he took the name. From this rich historical past linked to the family of Rohan remain the remains of the castle, the Chapel Notre Dame de Bonne Encontre.

From the Erdre to the Aulne, the canal is 364 km long, but only 20% of its length (about 73 km) is artificial. Eight rivers are channeled to feed, or arranged to make them navigable, becoming the ramifications of a rather surprising Breton navigable network.
