Chapelle Saint-Jacques and fountain from Tremeven

Tremeven

There are so romantic ruins of the fortress of Coatmen, name so gloriously cited in so many pages of our history. The castle had two main towers at 300 not the one from the other. The most advanced inland was square; the other was cylindrical. A deep ditch was around this nest of Eagle, established on a platform overlooking a vast, rich Hill, at the foot of which flows the Leff, the river of tears. The round tower remains standing on the edge of a precipice, like a ghost in the silent solitude of horror. At the other end of the stronghold, was the feudal Chapel in the ruins of which were found human bones and old coins. A centuries-old granite cross bows near the road to indicate the avenue of the remains of the valiant Knights whose feats astonished Europe, Africa and Asia.

In the same town the road is bordered by the village of Saint Jacques, where we see a splendid fountain, a cross, remarkable in granite and a high and ancient chapel that is attributed to the Knights Templar. This was to be the capital of the parish. The Church of Tremeven is bad, and the scarce resources of the commune cannot be sufficient to its rebuilding. It is held in Santiago a weekly market we would like to see approved, to give more life to this village in a beautiful site, as a trade link between Lanvollon and the port of Pontrieux.
