DEPARTURE: Trémazan tourist road parking lot.

The Beg Ar Galéti point is a former guard post, where you can see the remains of the buildings.

Beg Ar Galéti

The little chapel of Saint-Samson, dating from the second half of the 18th century, offers a marvellous panorama facing the ocean. Below the chapel flows a fountain whose miraculous virtue was used not so long ago. Children were immersed in the fountain to give them strength. The presence of a Gallic stele near the fountain attests to the ancient sacralization of the site. Behind the hamlet, a menhir set into an embankment, against which people used to rub to relieve their rheumatism, takes us even further back in time and reinforces Saint-Samson's healing function.

Saint-Samson chapel

While the Chapelle de Saint Samson is a real eye-catcher, the Lavoir de Saint Samson boasts exceptional surroundings and is well worth a visit.

The walls forming the enclosure are not as high as they once were, as photos show. The west wall was built on either side of a small menhir.

In the past, a tombstone was placed in this washhouse, but the reason for this is unknown. Is it from the Landunvez cemetery?
