Step 1/3:

Departure is from the forecourt of Saint-Gwenaël church.

In 1830, the church fell into ruin and was built without pillars, with round-headed windows.
The 16th-century facade and bell tower have been preserved in their simplicity and sobriety.
The 19th-century church burned down on September 8, 1944, during the fighting of the Liberation; only the bell tower survived.
Reconstruction took place between 1949 and 1952. The church offers visitors remarkable works of art by talented artists from Finistère.

The Parvis crosses:
North side: this is a very old cross, which stood in Tréflez until 1999.
South side: the cross commemorates successive missions since 1877.

It's a pleasant 17,136 m² family park, with a mix of green spaces and plantings.
You may come across ducks, moorhens or swans wading in the pond.
The park's stabilized paths make it easy to walk.

Still known as Perzel beach, it attracts many bathers and yachtsmen who enjoy mooring their boats here in fine weather.
Legend has it that Saint Sané, coming from Ireland, landed here in the 5th century, before settling in Plouzané.
