Dedicated to sailors, the Chapelle de Saint-Philibert ; 4 Rue de la Chapelle ; plunges you into a magical world. At high tide as at low tide, the chapel watches over the neighboring fishermen and oyster farmers on the banks of the Ster river. Built in 1648 in the heart of the Bay of Quiberon, its architecture has evolved over time. In the 17C, imagine it looked like a fisherman’s house, on a rectangular plan with a simple central nave.



From the moment there were two fountains, the lower one from 1649 was name Fontaine aux Bêtes or Beast Fountain more especially intended for the cows who came to drink there; the top one is Fontaine à la Croix or the fountain at the cross. People came there to draw water for their table. This aedicula is the most imposing and dates from the 18C. It is surrounded by a wall which delimits the paved and sacred space of the source. It is a square-plan fountain with an upper part on a horizontal plateau surmounted by a pyramid ending in a cross.

The best for us is the plage de Kernevest beach is a sandy beach very popular with families. 250 meters long, the left side is bordered by a pleasant pine forest and the right area is occupied by a sailing center. The beach is closed to animals from April 1 to September 30.My favorite beach site plages tv on the plage de Kernevest
