Centre-ville d'Inzinzac-Lochrist

Inzinzac, formerly Isnisac, Lochrist de Locus Christis

The village of Inzinzac-Lochrist is one of the lungs of the greater Lorient area: the forest of Trémelin, 750 hectares, the landscaped gardens of Bunz, 7 hectares, the island of Locastel, 2 hectares, the white-water park on the river Blavet and 30 km of signposted paths make for great nature holidays. The town grew in 1860 with the installation of the ironworks on the banks of the Blavet, producing tin plate and sheet metal for the growing vegetable and fish canning industry in south Brittany. Closed in 1966, the factory today houses the ecomuseum Les Forges, in memory of Breton industrial history. Today, Inzinzac-Lochrist is a great place for a stay: ideal for a family holiday, walking or canoeing.
