  • Learn all about the Celtic harp! Unique in Europe, this centre reveals all about the instrument of the bards through its exhibitions, events and concerts…

    This harp discovery centre, which opened in the summer of 2003 in the centre of medieval Dinan, is the only resource centre in Europe to focus on the Celtic harp. After a visit to the centre, the instrument of the druids will no longer hold any secrets for you! In the ‘Harps of the Celts, body and soul’ exhibition, a fun, educational visit tells the story of the Celtic harp and its legends, and how it is made, using a variety of media: photographs, illustrations, quotes…; or how about an exhibition entitled ‘musical donkeys to choirs of angels, harps of the Middle Ages’, that traces the symbolism of the harp through illuminations, stained glass and sculptures. Not forgetting the large number of events for both young and old, centred around the instrument itself, workshops, concerts and of course the ever changing interaction with the musicians…a delight for your ears!
