Belle-Île
Plouharnel
Plouharnel The Essential
In a strategic position on Quiberon Bay, this town retains old houses and a fine 16C chapel, Notre Dame des Fleurs. Visit the Plouharnel galleon (collection of shells and shell pictures), and the Chouan revolt museum. Out of town is the abbey of Ste Anne de Kergonan, founded as a daughter house of Solesmes in 1897, home to a Benedictine community dividing its time between prayer and ceramic manufacture. St Michel de Keronan belongs to the same order but is an enclosed house.
