Saint-Jacut-de-la-Mer

Saint-Jacut-de-la-Mer is a commune in the Côtes-d'Armor département of Brittany in northwestern France.PopulationInhabitants of Saint-Jacut-de-la-Mer are called jaguens and jaguines in French.LocationSaint-Jacut is sited on a well protected coastal peninsula between two sea inlets. The sandy beach slopes unusually gently: the lateral distance between the low tide and high tide positions is correspondingly above average, as is the speed with which the sea moves between the two extremities.PrehistoryThe peninsula of Saint-Jacut and the Ebihens archipelago have the presence of several archeological sites attesting to human presence during the Neolithic, Bronze Age and Iron Age. Most of these sites are the result of work sites and small encampments in which humans exploited the mineral and sea resources of the area.HistoryThe village of Saint-Jacut evolved around successive abbeys founded on the peninsula. It provided the monastery with food and supplies and more importantly, it served as one its seigneuries. The history of the first abbey is legendary, its story only written down in an anonymous 11th-century Latin document from the time of the abbey's second founding.The legend holds that a British-born monk named "Iagu" ("Jacut" in the local dialect of Gallo) founded a monastery at the site of an older hermitage established by a Saint Doac on the "Island of Landoac" (literally "llan of Doac"). St. Jacut's family had fled the Anglo-Saxon invasions. He arrived in Armorica with his father, Fragan, his mother, Gwen Teirbron, and his twin, Guethenoc. The family settled in Ploufragan, where his sister Clervie (or Creirvie) and his younger brother, Winwaloe, were born.
