Fancy recharging your batteries? Follow the pilgrims’ footsteps by getting on the route of Saint James of Compostella and Tro Breiz which pass through the area.
Bannalec, ville fleurie
Commune fleurie et soucieuse du respect de l’environnement, Bannalec a été labellisée ville fleurie « 1 fleur ». Ses compositions florales généreuses et harmonieuses rendent la ville encore plus accueillante.
Bannalec comes from the Breton « bala » which means «broom”. The town’s name therefore means “the place where broom grows”.
