The hollow paths and the Léran River run through the countryside and the villages of Mériadec. Saint Mériadec was very popular in Brittany and across the Atlantic from the 5th century.

Take the path in front of you and follow the path in the undergrowth along the Léran river. The Vallon du Léran shelters several elements of small inheritance: wash house, calvary as well as several sources which testify to the importance of this place in other times.

At the intersection of the D19, cross over the protected passage, turn left, continue for 150 m and turn right at Kerhouarn. This village is home to some pretty Breton cottages and longère.

4- At 250 m, turn right to take the Voie Verte Sainte Anne / Vannes. At the end of the hollow path opposite the entrance to the public school, turn left. (Nearby: an information panel on the “Green Lane”).

5- At the intersection, turn right to return to the center of Mériadec. At the crossroads of rue Parfait Pobéguin (painter from Elven), continue opposite for 50 m then take a right onto the pretty alley (rue du four) which leads to the church square of Mériadec. Mériadec (Bishop of Vannes in the 5th century) was very popular in Brittany where several chapels are dedicated to him. Its reputation was such that the Celts of Wales also worshiped him at that time.The village, crossed by the important Vannes-Quimper Roman road, was already probably a stopover in Roman times.
The sustainability of the village was then ensured by the lords of Coët-Sal who created here one of the most important horse fairs in Brittany.
