Lesconil, Fouesnant and again the Finistére!

On an unusual Sunday , we could not resist to stay home with so much beauty all around us and plenty to still see here. So on a cloudy looming rain day and cool 15C we set out for the neighboring department 29 of Finistére.

We took a winding ride by car on the N165 by passing the town on my next post we reach on the D44 and later the D102 roads the towns of Fouesnant, La Fôret-Fouesnant, Plobannalec, and Lisconil.

Fouesnant, and La Fôret-Fouesnant are part of the Riviera Bretonne and plenty of beaches on really much better time than today. More on it here in English: http://www.tourisme-fouesnant.fr/en/la-riviera-bretonne-English

We came to Fouesnant on the day of a trocs et puces or barter and flea market event, the city center/Downtown was packed and lively.  Passing by more quiet La Fôret-Fouesnant we saw passing a good looking Church of Notre Dame d-Izel-Vor ;this Church was built in the first half of the 16C and from the Breton name in French means Notre Dame de Basse-Mer or shallow seas) . It has a gothic style typical of the region and you can see the dates of 1538 in the wall under the porch and 1628 below the baptistery.  The Church is open year around but you can ask at the tourist office for guided visits free of charge in July and August from 10h30 to 12h30 and from 15h to 19h from Sundays afternoon to Friday evenings. More in French from the city tourist page here: http://www.foret-fouesnant-tourisme.com/?titre=eglise-notre-dame-izel-vor&mode=foret-fouesnant&id=49

We went on the road D44 to Pont l’Abbé, never visited and really not much to see here, so we continue our journey. More on the town here: http://www.paysdepontlabbe-tourisme.com/fr/infos-pratiques/infos-office-de-tourisme

We continue our discovery ride into the nice town of Plobannalec  right on the edge of the Pays Bigoudin Breton. The town here first impression was nice and a wonderful historical Church. This is the Church Saint Alour; built between the 13C to 15C after much degradation, it was decided to do a newer one and succeeding efforts made built from 1876 to 1889.  The vast majority of the statues, stained glass, and paintings come from the original Church. Impressive building indeed. More on it in the tourist page of the city here in French: http://www.plobannalec-lesconil.com/patrimoine-rural/

We reach the end of the road until decided to come back home. However,not before reaching the sister city of Lesconil a fisherman’s harbor paradise. Here you have all the action around the harbor with lots of fisherman’s boat even if the trade has almost disappear, you can still see plenty of boats and the off island of Men ar Groas visible from the harbor deck. There is a lively square with plenty of restaurants and shops and a really good in the Cantine de Mer. Good one from the menu and prices not try as we were heading home early on a Sunday. You can even see the friendly seagull that came to welcome me in the harbor looking for food seems so used to that and is not good to do so please. More on the harbor here: http://www.plobannalec-lesconil.com/port-de-peche-de-plaisance/

In French how to come to this area on many modes of transports: http://www.plobannalec-lesconil.com/comment-venir-a-plobannalec-lesconil/

In all as usual ,it was a pleasant trip to get to know another area of our belle Bretagne. These are pick and savor and family decisions we will be back eventually. Enjoy your Sunday, Cheers
