History and heritage
Le Cours became a commune on March 17, 1932. Before, it was attached to the commune of Molac under the name Le Cours-de-Molac. Its history is therefore intimately linked to that of its mother parish. In the 12th century, the arrival of the knights of St-John-of-Jerusalem constitutes one of the great events in the history of Le Cours. They erect an almshouse with a chapel that is attached in the 14th century to the temple of Carentoir…
The castle of Trégouët, a renowned historical place, was the residence of the lords of Molac… Owned today by the lineage of De Chabannes. The town is also rich in small heritage: its church of the nineteenth century, its chapel of Priziac and the adjoining priory now transformed into a multipurpose room of the town, old farms, a mill renovated for chambres-dhotes-de-charact, a few wells and especially 27 old bread ovens listed on the territory…
The Chapel of Priziac is mentioned as early as the 12th century under the form Parciacum and honored under the vocation of the Immaculate Conception. Near this chapel, a women’s monastery that depended on the abbey of St. Sulpice of Rennes existed.
