The wonderful small Church of Notre Dame de la Fosse, from the 19C and  rebuilt around 1820. The bell tower dates from the 18C and stood near the present Church, housing the four bells. The Church Notre Dame de la Fosse of Guémené sur Scorff. It owes this name to the pit or moat that separates it from the castle. Built for the service of the castle and the city, it was not parochial, but it depended on the rector of Locmalo. The church then included: the choir, reserved for the canons, the chapel of Saint-Jacques, the chapel of Saint-Yves, and the nave serving the faithful; there was moreover along the nave the large chapel of Saint-Antoine de Padoue, and at the bottom of this chapel the tower of the church. The town will celebrate the 266th pardon of Notre-Dame-de-la-Fosse. The first pardon was celebrated in 1753, so long before the andouille festival which has since been associated with the pardon. It was after 1,000 years of living together with Locmalo that Guémené in 1802 was canonically erected as a parish . In 1825, the current church was completed and built on the same site as the collegiate with probably the same stones.
