The town of Saint-Renan, listed as one of France's "Most Beautiful Detours", also boasts a number of fine medieval residences, as well as a historical trail that will guide you through the town of yesteryear.
The historical trail features 13 enamelled lava panels that punctuate the discovery of the town. A great opportunity to come back and visit this beautiful town.
What's more, Saint-Renan hosts Finistère's biggest Saturday morning market.
In 1957, the Saint Renan marshes revealed a large deposit of tin ore, mined by the Compagnie minière de Saint Renan.
After fifteen years of operation, the deposit was exhausted. Today, seven lakes remain. In the heart of the town, the shores of the "Ty Colo" and "La Comiren" lakes have been landscaped for the enjoyment of walkers.
The smooth waters of the Ty Colo lake were the first in Brittany to host an astonishing board sport: wakeboarding on a cable.
