  • The name of Le Saint in Morbihan refers to Saint-Guénolé, founder of Landévennec Abbey in Finistère. In the 5th century, King Gradlon donated him "Le Saint", a locality located south of the Black Mountains, bounded by Inam and the Moulin du Duc stream. Subsequently, Le Saint passed into the hands of the Viscounts of Gourin, then into that of the lords of Faouët who settled there in 1343, after the capture of their castle. They remained there until the 17th century. In the village of Le Saint, we notice the town hall whose facade and gable were built with stones from the Saint-Adrien de Bouthiry chapel which fell into ruin at the beginning of the 20th century. Pleasant hiking trails crisscrossing Le Saint allow you to discover its architectural heritage such as the pretty Saint-Samuel fountain. The Saint is now labeled "a flower".
