Step 1/6:

DEPARTURE: Saint Paul Aurélien church parking lot.

The commune's name is a reminder that it was originally a simple trève of the parish of Ploudalmézeau.
According to tradition, in the 6th century, after landing on Ouessant, Saint Pol Aurélien, future bishop of Léon, set up an oratory and temporary camp near the fountain. The present church, built on the same site 1100 years later, was dedicated to him.

Place du Bourg

It is also known as Chapelle de Saint-Eloi.

Kerlanou chapel

3 kilometers long, Tréompan beach is a white sandy beach where sandcastle contests and beach volleyball games are welcome.
In the shape of a cove and marked by the presence of the Rocher du Serpent, the beach is sheltered from the wind.
However, as you move away from the coast, the beach becomes a favorite playground for kitesurfers.

Tréompan Beach

The pretty Plage des Trois Moutons is a large beach with white sand and turquoise water, surrounded by dunes.

A surfer's paradise, here you can practice kitesurfing, windsurfing and all types of foiling.

Plage des Trois Moutons

Commonly known as the "Ribl covered alley".
Dates back to around 3,000 BC, named after an ancient watercourse.

The main chamber, accessible from the south-southeast, consisted of two rows of parallel pillars supporting slabs over a length of 10m. The first pillar was placed obliquely to mark the threshold.

At the far end of the chamber, we can still see a bedside slab on one side, perpendicular to the axis of the monument, and a cell on the other. Discoveries made during excavations in 1923 and 1924 suggest that it was still in use in the Bronze Age.

It was listed as a historic monument in February 1940.
