Again Christmas at Locronan!

And once again I came to this wonderful town during Christmas market period, we missed it but we are getting back into our lives after the passing of a very dear person, my wife Martine.

Locronan was special because it is traditional and respected by all here. The Christmas market is small as the town is with less than 1K inhabitants but the dimensions of its fame are huge. We have come here every year since we were here and have a couple of entries on it, we skip 2018 and are back this year 2019.

I will put those previous posts here and then add the new photos. Hope you enjoy it as we do and Merry Christmas! At Locronan it seems more real!!

A day after the hectic Christmas we decided to go out, I went with the Young men in the family on a car ride into Finistére, about 1h30 from our house is Locronan. This is a famous town here, only about 800 inhabitants but famous for its Grande Tromédie (second sunday of July) a religious and historical procession of 12 kms.

And of course, we look at the Christmas chalets even if in the afternoon they were not light up yet. It is nice quaint but a bit smallish and we have other town as favorite here for that …..see my posts. We are only about over an hour from our house so another wonderful backyard town to stop by, Locronan. Post: Locronan back again at Christmas season

Before anything else, here is the city of Locronan and 2019 Christmas lights feast! City of Locronan and Christmas lights 2019

On the program: concert of sacred gypsy songs, street shows and Breton dances, fairground rides and Santa Claus on a pony! Christmas magic works every time in the wonderful little city of character, it’s magic and free!

In all the streets and all the squares of the historic heart, the light decorations will compete in beauty in the purest and most traditional Christmas spirit! Spicy and gourmet scents will guide you throughout your journey, for a ride that promises to be enchanting. Traders and art craftsmen will welcome you on the Christmas market made up of 25 chalets and in their shop or workshop to find magnificent gifts.
