Itinerary
Step 1/3:

Departure is from the parking lot before Lakournan Vian 29810 - D27 route de l'aber.

The circuit is clockwise.

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.

Hermitage 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.
