Favorite thing: if there is a town to walk, this is it. small only about 800 inhabitants, all done like if time has stop, you can walk every house of it, and they are a marvel of Breton construction.
the Church, the businesses ,the restos all are beautiful. You get to know little things like the horse head on the store at pl de l'église, and many subtle more, for you to do the walking now.
Fondest memory: the place de l'église and place de la mairie I can stay all day ::)

The church of Saint Ronan
Favorite thing: Ronan was a hermit came from Eire during the 11° century.
He is known to have delivered a sheep from the wolfs (a hunter I presume).
Several lords wanted to have the body of a so saint man in their lands. The dispute was settled by God : the body was put on a wagon pulled by oxen but without a drover. They stoped at the place of the current church.
Fondest memory: Locronan is a saint city with a pilgrimage (nearer than Jerusalem).
When we were there, the church was remodeled with a huge scaffolding. So I shot this picture from the side...
