    The foundation of Langonnet dates from the 6th century when the Britons from Great Britain emigrated. In 818, weary of the insubordination of the Bretons, Emperor Louis the Pious, son of Charlemagne, gathered his troops and confronted their king, Morvan Lez-Breizh ("the support of Brittany") who then reigned in central Brittany. Morvan was killed during a battle which probably took place on the territory of Langonnet. Later, history will leave its mark through an impressive architectural richness such as Langonnet Abbey, Cistercian abbey where the Spiritan missionaries founded a museum of African art, the magnificent parish church illustrating Romanesque art or that of the Trinity Langonnet. Langonnet has beautiful hiking trails and the Pontigou pond will appeal to lovers of outdoor activities. It is also a town where culture is omnipresent in all its forms: traditional and current music, dance, contemporary art. The association La Grande Boutique opens its doors to you for frequent concerts!
