The Saint-Mériadec chapel is part of the Cistercian abbey of Lanvaux.
This abbey was founded in 1138. During the Revolution, the monks were expelled and the estate was sold.
The pilgrimage of Saint Mériadec was very famous and one of the most frequented in the country of Auray, especially by farmers and peasants. They came from afar with their animals to pray to the saint. Inside the chapel, the sand pits are sculpted. It features animal bestiary, burlesque characters and a musician. The chapel houses a statue of Saint Noyale who is one of the Breton cephalophores: saints beheaded and presented holding their heads in their hands.

Open Thursday from 2:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. from July 9 to August 27 with reception and every day from July 1 to August 31 without reception.
