The Trinité-sur-Mer is known for its nautical competitions. It is a port nested in the middle of the Baie of Quiberon not far from the Golfe of Morbihan.
HistoryIt is as from the 13th century that one finds traces of the village and his port. The saltworks activity is very important during several centuries. A house of customs officer posted in watchtower at the entry of the channel testifies to this time.
The Trinité-sur-Mer includes/understands 15 of the 70 villages listed on the parish of Carnac in 1475. Among those, Locqueltas (festivity of Larmor); a vault of the Holy Trinity is built there in 1682, succeeding a Saint-Gildas vault. Locqueltas becomes then the village of the Trinity (current borough). The commune of the Trinité-sur-Mer is created in 1864, the parish in 1865.
The village developed around the maritime trade and the small community thrived. But in 1931, the government took a protectionist measure to support Charbonnages de France. The maritime trade stopped at the Trinité-sur-Mer. The village turned then to the fishing. Old the Shouted, demolished in 1923, was rebuilt, and the goélettes left the place to the fishing vessels.
Today, the fishing port was transformed into marina with the rise of nautical tourism. The Ostréiculture is as well present at the Trinité-sur-Mer.
Places and monuments
- the bridge of Kerisper which was built by Gustave Eiffel out of steel and was inaugurated in 1901. This bridge joining Saint-Philibert was destroyed in 1944 by the Germans and was rebuilt in 1956.
Sports and activitiesIn complement with terrestrial tourism, the Trinity developed its port with flood, which is today one of the main ports of pleasure in Brittany. Its privileged position at the bottom of an estuary enables him to accommodate boats of race of big size, primarily of the multihulls (catamarans, trimarans), which come to prepare for the races around the world.
