The inhabitants of the Pulp name Lamboliens, which is not without pointing out the name of the town of Lamballe (Lamballais inhabitants), on which the Pulp depended under the Old Mode.
Places and monumentsThe tower of the Théard City is a remarkable monument. It is about an octagonal tower of about thirty meters height belonging to the military communication system of monitoring of the coasts, by semaphoric transmission (flags and flags according to a definite code). It was set up under the Second Empire, in 1864. This transmission, which supposed that it is dawning and that time is released, made it possible to quickly transmit information at important distances because there was in Brittany a true network of this type of turn, whose majority were destroyed to recover materials of them (there remains about it one in the area of Quintin). The tower of the Théard City relayed the semaphore of Erquy of which it is perfectly visible.
This tower is built with the manner of a headlight, around a spiral staircase on core, of 148 massive steps forming each one district and portion of core, lit by narrow openings placed at regular intervals which follow the progression of the staircase. In top, it is decorated with beautiful rambarde and acroteria out of stones of strong dimension, finely cut and bouchardées, that it was necessary in its time to go up to this impressive height. Its octagonal section, gives him a great elegance, at the price of a considerable work, without common measurement with what she would have asked whether she had been circular: 8 chains of angles with 135° of 30 meters, that on average represents approximately 720 stones of angles to 150 kg part. The equipment of the main door, overlapping in the chains of angle, is a handle of basket whose central key supports the escutcheon of its date of construction.
What is finally remarkable, it is that the stone used is not other than superb the pink sandstone quarzite of Erquy, if hard and difficult to cut, and that it must be brought to the Théard City, by cartages, since the careers of the Cape.
