Rochefort-en-Terre (French pronunciation: [ʁɔʃfɔʁ ɑ̃ tɛʁ] (listen); Breton: Roc'h-an-Argoed) is a commune in the Morbihan department of Brittany in north-western France.

Rochefort-en-Terre is a designated “Petite Cité de Caractère”.

The medieval chateau located in the town was the home of American painter Alfred Klots. He purchased the chateau in the early 1900s and oversaw its restoration. His son Trafford Klots inherited the chateau and continued to paint there and entertain other visiting artists. After his death his wife donated the building to the French government. In the grounds of the building is the NAIA museum, named after an early twentieth century witch who lived in the town. It houses a small collection of fantasy and kinetic art and sculpture.
