The town of Saint-Renan is listed as one of "Les Plus Beaux Détours de France", and 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.

Saint-Renan city tour

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.

Lakes of Saint-Renan

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.
