At the top of Menez Lokorn, the hill of Locronan, this chapel have been constructed in 1977 and keep beautiful glasses by Jean Bazaine. This place is one of the stop during the Great Tromιnie, a 12 kilometers long traditional procession. Saint Ronan, an irish hermit living there in the VIth century used to do this march everyday.

The name of the place means “the place of the horn”. According to the legend, one of the oxen pulling Saint Ronan’s funeral cart lost a horn there. It had been beaten by a bad woman who hated the saint. The earth opened and made her disappear. The cart stopped not far from there and the town of Locronan was founded.
