This is a village that is located 3 miles from Auray. It is famous for its sanctuary and its pilgrimages in the honour of St.Anne. It is said that she appeared to a simple and pious villager in the region and asked him to build a chapel. After a lot of discussion of proofs, where the whole village testified to the frequent appearances of St.Anne, the building of the chapel was given a green signal. The original statue was destroyed in the French Revolution but was later restored. Highlights include:

  • The architecture is a mix of gothic and renaissance.
  • A bronze statue of St.Anne, standing with a torch in her hand, is situated at the top of the chapel.
  • A 17th century monastery.
  • A war memorial.
  • The treasury and the gallery of religious arts.
  • The museum of traditional Breton clothes.
  • The historical wax museum.
  • House of Yves Nicolazic, the legendary farmer who built the chapel.

For those who have a great interest in the religious arts, this place is a must-visit.
