Departure: From the Chapelle Notre-Dame de Locmaria, listed as a Historic Monument. It is built on an ancient Gallo-Roman edifice. Built in the early 13th century, it has undergone several alterations, blending the Romanesque and Gothic styles. This remarkable chapel is covered with medieval paintings, from floor to roof, which are among the oldest in Morbihan. Since 2009, the chapel has benefited from several restoration campaigns, enabling us to appreciate its unique décor, alternating religious and secular scenes with geometric decorations. Beautiful Romanesque capitals are carved with grinning human heads and animals. Open from mid-June to mid-September. Turn left on the road, towards the Plusquen mill.

Focus: - Locmaria chapel is believed to have been built on an ancient Gallo-Roman edifice. Located on the route of the Tro Breizh and the pilgrimage to Sainte-Anne d'Auray, it served as a resting and nursing place for pilgrims. Since 2009, it has been undergoing a major restoration campaign. The 1st phase of the project uncovered ancient paintings on the arches and roof structure (13th-18th centuries): geometric shapes in red, ochre, white and black. Phase 2 revealed a figurative cycle of over 13 figures (13th century). Restoration aims to reveal these exceptional paintings. Open from time to time (ask at the tourist office).
