There are thousands of them in Brittany. You come across them around the bend in a road, in the middle of a village or out in the countryside. They’re places where history meets golden legend, places holding treasures that have survived for millennia...what are they? Chapels!
‘Détour d'Art’ (Artistic Encounter) takes you in search of the chapels of the Auray area, an astonishing, often little-understood heritage, an adventure not to be missed for lovers of nature and heritage. Take the time to explore the lavish natural world of the Auray area, its paths through valleys, forests and villages and across rivers, and discover its chapels. Where history meets legend, where secular and religious art come together, they bear witness to the skills and beliefs of the people of Brittany. There are guided or unaccompanied tours, family trails, workshops, exhibitions, concerts, entertainments: the different options are as many as they are varied. Whether you’re travelling on foot, by bike or by car, as you follow the family trails you can develop your own skills as a historical researcher. Détour d’Art maps and family kits are available free in the Tourist Offices.
