START: Church parking lot.

The church is not very old. Built between 1901 and 1905 by architect Ernest Le Guerrannic, it replaced an earlier 15th-century building on the same site, of which no trace remains. The side steeple and turret containing the staircase to the bell chamber were built in 1925 by architect Joseph Philippe.

Iroise Heritage

Saint-Gouescat church

Classified as a historic monument on July 1, 1975, the hermitage of Saint-Hervé houses the ruins of a chapel, a miraculous fountain and a stone cell that is said to have housed the saint.

l'Ermitage Saint-Hervé

Located at the bottom of the Traon Bouzar, the Vallon Sourd, the Saint-Ergat fountain is a natural spring that has always been frequented by hundreds of pilgrims suffering from rheumatism. The three columns, reused Gallic stelae, bear witness to an ancient cult at this site, later linked to Sant Ergad when he became the patron saint of the Tréouergat parish.
