La Trinité-sur-Mer (French pronunciation: ​[la tʁinite syʁ mɛʁ]; Breton: An Drinded-Karnag) is a commune in the Morbihan department in Brittany, in north-western France.[3] Inhabitants of La Trinité-sur-Mer are called Trinitains.

It is located east of Carnac. The town is primarily a port, with a seaside quay dotted by numerous seafood restaurants. The town is also known for its watersport competitions.

Separated from the well known commune of Carnac in 1864, several of the famous neolithic standing stones in the Carnac stones fall within its boundaries, including the dolmens of Kerdeneven and Kermarquer, and the Petit-Ménec Alignments.


'Pont de Kerisper' (Kerisper bridge)

The Pont de Kerisper connects the commune to the neighbouring Saint-Philibert. The current bridge is a replacement, built in 1956, of the previous bridge which was destroyed by German bombing.[4]
