This stunning little town in Finistère, 5 kilometres from the sea, has earned the Small Town of Character and Most Beautiful Village of France labels, and is also a listed Historic Monument! So that makes three reasons to stop by there and admire its architectural heritage: a 15th-century church featuring a pulpit telling the story of St. Ronan, its founder; some beautiful Renaissance homes made of blue granite; the Chapel of Our Lady of Good News; the St. Eutropius fountain, and more.

Locronan became a weavers' town in the 15th century with the development of sail cloth manufacturing. This industrial past is on display at the Art and History Museum, which also has a collection of Breton paintings from the early 20th century.

Other curiosities include the creative craft shops, including a glass works run by a master glassmaker, an expert in the various glass-blowing techniques.

From Locronan, you can go into the Névet woods, which are ideal for outings and hikes with the family, on foot, horseback or mountain bike.

Visitors may be interested to know that Locronan is a location of choice for film directors: scenes from "Tess," "A Very Long Engagement" and "Chouans!" were filmed there.
