Introduction to the TRO BREIZ,  front cover
From medieval origins to a strong revival today, the Tro Breiz pilgrimage is a journey through the history and religious heritage of Brittany. It connects the seven cathedrals of the seven founding saints, and also includes the legends, chapels and sacred springs of many others, in a circular itinerary. Megaliths, castles, memorials and curiosities add further layers of interest.
This book provides an outline of the unforgettable adventure that awaits pilgrims of any faith or none.
Key to all the beauty of Brittany
Old towns of great architectural colour anchor the seven stages of the Tro Breiz. Between those, the changing landscape is revealed by tracks through forests and over moorland, footpaths down tree-lined hollow ways, waterside walking along estuaries and coastal paths, and quiet trails connecting rural villages.
