Your stay

Forgiveness and saint worship are part of the Breton heritage. Just like the many remarkable religious buildings. This break presents several of these remarkable sites. Such as the Saint-Anne d’Auray sanctuary, its neo-Gothic basilica and cloister; Quimper, its historic centre and its cathedral, a gem of Gothic architecture in Brittany; or the ruins and the museum of Landévennec abbey, founded in the 5th century. Take a detour via Locronan and stroll around the little streets of this town of character which is on the list of the most beautiful villages of France. Visit some of the many traditional shops or taste a local speciality, such as apple kouign aman.

The circuit ends with the discovery of two original sites. The churchyards are unique architectural sites and demonstrate Breton Catholic fervour. They bear witness to the past prosperity of the textile industry and the rivalry between parishes to build the most majestic monuments. Lastly, the excursion is the opportunity to marvel at the impressive giant statues of the Valley of Saints, an exceptional site recently twinned with Easter Island.
