History and heritage

His origins

The name Molac of Celtic origin “mol” comes from a Gallic word meaning “hill“. Cited in writings from the early 9th century, Molac has preserved many remains, witnesses of its distant past. Until 1931, Molac also encompassed the trève or frairie Le Cours.

Country heritage

As they walk along the paths, walkers will be able to discover a whole profane and religious heritage: ancient bread ovens are located in several villages, numerous granite calvaries still mark the ancient parish of Molac.

Several houses in the village of Molac date from the 17th century: one dates from 1683 and another from 1688 (dates engraved on the dormers). Since 1873, a building of Gothic style, replaced the old church of the fifteenth century, of which we have retained only the doors with flamboyant decoration and the bell tower, square, cushioned by a slate spire, which rises at the corner of the nave and the north cross.

Finally, two chapels are worth a visit for their historical and architectural interest: the chapelle du l’Hermain, the largest and most remarkable was built by the Templars in the twelfth century, and the chapelle du Lindeul built in the thirteenth century by the order of the Knights of Malta
