Tressignaux (Breton: Tresigne, Latin: Trisgnala) is a commune in the Côtes-d'Armor department in the Brittany region in northwestern France.

The Chapel of Saint-Antoine, located in the village, was built in the thirteenth century and rebuilt in the sixteenth. Each year, a "pardon" is celebrated on the 3rd Sunday in August, attracting visitors to the village.[1]
