Plumergat, its town with three steeples, its villages and its chapels are located along paths and country roads.


Departure:
From the kiosk, admire the "three bell towers": the Saint-Thuriau church which preserves the nave, the arcades and the carved capitals of its Romanesque origin. To the right of the south gate is the unique Breton stele (1st century) bearing Gallic inscriptions. The text in Roman capitals is composed of six Gaulish words translated as follows: "Vabros drew (this) to the Fathers of the boundary (or country) for Giapos son of Durnos". Nearby, the 15th century Chapel of La Trinité is a fine example of the flamboyant style, also called late Gothic. It houses many statues from other buildings. Its drip trees and sand pits abound with profane sculptures: animals, characters and fantastic monsters. Open from July to September.Finally, the Chapel Saint-Servais was built by a rich local peasant following a pilgrimage to the tomb of the Saint in Maastricht in Holland. Opposed to the construction, rector Louis Le Gras resigned himself after having miraculously escaped a horse accident. His name is on a sandpit.
Take the rue des trois bell towers to the roundabout. Take the first exit towards Sainte-Anne-d'Auray. Then turn left on Rue Chaigneau, follow the Grand Champ road and then on the D133 for about 400 m.


1 Turn right towards Coet Noc then right towards Kervaly. Join the Trongoff Mill (private). Join the D17 by Lann Justice.

2 Take the D17 left then right until Kermaréchal then, at the next crossroads, turn left towards Locmaria then Gornevec. Admire the Chapel of Our Lady of Gornevec (16th - 19th - 20th centuries) which owes its name to the Roman road "Hent-Gornevec". It was prosperous in the nineteenth century and frequented by nannies who came to pray for milk abundant.Around 1920, part of the roof collapsed, and the rest a few years later. The association "Friends of Gornevec", under the leadership of "Breiz Santel", restored its original appearance to this beautiful chapel. Annual Forgiveness takes place on the last Sunday of August.

3 Turn around and reach the village by Resto Marvil.

4 At the D133, turn right to the starting point.
