The old Port

Formerly called the port of "Stang Al Lestreg", the old port was the heart of commercial exchanges. Its strategic location and the importance of commercial traffic allowed the construction of quays and two slipways from 1850.

Each year, around a hundred ships picked up and unloaded various goods (sand, maerl, wood, grain, etc.).

At the beginning of the 20th century many farmers of La Forêt-Fouesnant participated in this activity during the winter period and thus supplemented their income.

At that time the port also welcomed sardine and mackerel fishermen.

In 2019, the artist Pierre Chanteau installed a mosaic eye on the hold of the Old Port.
