What a great place to spend an afternoon with the family, The church is tucked away and is a testament to the builders of the time. Its lovely inside so make a detour from the main Lorient freeway and pop in.

We had a picnic and enjoyed the view. Very friendly and relaxing. Definitely worth a visit in Le Faouet.

I have had the pleasure of visiting Sainte Barbe 3 times now and it is just as magical every time, there is always something else to see.

This is without doubt like being on a film set; a huge bell in a belfry for trying out your skills, a mediaeval inn with local cider, an ancient fountain, and most strange but unbelievably beautiful, an ancient chapel fitted sideways onto the steep riverbank...More
