We walked in the Forest of Cranou and now it was coffee time! Fortunately Le Faou is close by. It is a small Mediaeval port founded in the 11C on the Faou River which flows into the Rade de Brest.
The Grande Rue leads to and from the port and like all Grande Rues it is lined with merchants’ mansions.
The Church of St Sauveur was originally an Enclos Paroissial and dates to the 16C and 17C. The enclosing wall has gone, as has the Ossuary, and there is only a hint of the Arch.
The afternoon improved and so we pottered down towards the Rade de Brest.
The ruined Chapel of Saint-Oyen of Lanvoy was built between the 16C and 18C and overlooked a peaceful stretch of the river. Apparently it belonged to the Abbey of Landevennec, just across the water.
