Saint-Eloy (Breton: Sant-Alar) is a commune in the Finistère department of Brittany in north-western France.

History[edit]

In 1521, the monks of the Abbey of Daoulas, fleeing the plague, took refuge in Fresq (former name of the town) and build a chapel there, which stood today as the church of Saint-Eloy. The name Saint-Eloy came from Saint Eligius.[2]
