Saint-Thégonnec (Breton: Sant-Tegoneg) is a former commune in the Finistère department in Brittany in northwestern France. On 1 January 2016, it was merged into the new commune Saint-Thégonnec Loc-Eguiner.
Inhabitants of Saint-Thégonnec are called Saint-Thégonnecois.
The municipality launched a linguistic plan through Ya d'ar brezhoneg on 25 March 2005.
A parish close is an enclosed area around the parish church, including the church yard and a number of other features.
In common with others in the area, the Saint-Thégonnec close features a large ceremonial entrance arch, stressing the importance of the close as a focus for pilgrimage and pardons. An impressive calvary or crucifix forms the focus of the church yard. As at nearby Lampaul-Guimiliau, there is a separate charnel house or ossuary, with a life-sized tableau of the Entombment of Christ.
