The Saint-Thurien chapel displays whitewashed walls and painted alcoves which used to house statues, now lost. A bit of history... According to certain people, the origins of Lannion were due to the destruction of Lexobia by the Danish in 836. To work your way up the river Léguer towards the coast, Lannion is an essential part of the route, especially at high tide. In Roman times, to go from Lexobia on land towards the east, the routes inevitably passed through Lannion. The waterways were one such way of entering the Léguer river.
Lannion also possesses a château renowned since the Middle Ages. The first fishway, which measues close to 200 metres and which was used as a trap, was built in Servel in the middle of the 1st century, formed of stakes bound by wooden grating, with triangular platforms anchoring the structure in the sand and also serving as a breakwater.
As the tide receded, fish would be trapped in the holding basin.
Lannion was part of the Tréguier diocese before the Revolution and the King maintained the balance of power in making Lannion the office of his jurisdiction.
Lannion’s port contributed strongly to its rise before the Second World War. This town is known for events linked to the War of the Breton Succession, the Wars of the Holy League in 1588-1598 and the Revolt of the Bonnets Rouges in 1675.
One of its inhabitants was excluded from the royal amnesty of February 1676.
