Let’s visit again La Trinité sur Mer !!!

Yes, let’s visit again La Trinité sur Mer ,a beautiful harbor town in my beautiful Morbihan and lovely Bretagne. This is boater’s heaven but will tell more, and more. Hope you enjoy the post as I. It is just south of me about 33 km easy ride into the coast of the Gulf of Morbihan

La Trinité-sur-Mer was created in 1864, the city stretches over 800 meters along the Crac’h River, where the large, well-sheltered estuary hosts the many oyster parks destined for the spat harvest. A small fishing port, a busy marina and shipyards bring a great animation to the seaside city which has beautiful beaches along the coast


Things to see ,are, me think.  The Kerisper Bridge joins Saint-Philibert by crossing the river Crac’h. Originally, it was a steel bridge, designed by Gustave Eiffel and inaugurated in 1901. It was destroyed in 1944 by the Nazis and rebuilt between 1956 and 1958, in the form of an arc bridge of 203 meters long. Several Megalithic sites such as the alignment of Petit-Ménec; covered driveway of Er-Roh; Dolmen of Kermarker;Dolmen of Mané Rohr; Dolmens of Mané-Kervilor, and tumulus of Er-Velenc-Losquet. Also, Saint Joseph’s Church. The church was originally a Carnac chapel. The building became a church in 1865, when the town of La Trinité-sur-Mer was born. Two elements hold the attention: the bell tower and the altarpiece. In 1891, the bell tower was raised 10 meters to serve as a landmark for sailors. As for the altarpiece, it is the centerpiece of the church. it dates from 1682


Other than those mention in previous posts, there are several  smaller beaches or creeks open on the channel of the Crac’h, crossed by the numerous pleasure boats that join the port: They also allow the fishing on foot in the mudflat of the Vaneresse, discovered at low tide and stretching all the long the channel to the port, but also swimming at high tide in reserved spaces forbidden to navigation.


A bit of history I like : It was from the 13C that traces of the village and its port were found. Saline activity is very important for several centuries. The village developed around the maritime trade and the small community prospered. But in 1931, the government took a protectionist measure to promote the collieries of France. Maritime trade stopped in La Trinité-sur-Mer. The village then turned to fishing. The old auction, demolished in 1923, was rebuilt, and the schooners left the place for the fishing boats. Today, the fishing port has turned into a marina with the rise of nautical tourism. The oyster is also well-present at La Trinité-sur-Mer.
