Locronan is a beautiful town in Brittany, France. It is a very popular tourist attraction. It is exceptional in that most of Locronan's hotels, shops and houses are very old and still intact. Walking around, one gets a feeling of being in another time completely. There's even a horse drawn carriage in the summer carring visitors and an almost complete lack of modern vehicles. The hanging signs outside the shops are wonderful pictures in themselves.

Most of the smaller streets are cobbled, adding further to the feeling of being in a place of times gone by.

Locronan church has been recently restored as can be seen in the photograph on the right.



Just one of the many shop signs in Locronan. the shopkeepers, hotelliers and restaurant owners seem to take much care to provide attractive signs, something which you see more here than in most other towns.

It's well worth the trip to nearby Douarnenez to see the town, the port and especially the wooden boats.
