Discover all the things to see and do in this Little Town of Character ® …
This is one of Brittany’s most beautiful religious buildings, built in pink and grey granite (14th and 15th centuries). The cathedral has been dedicated to Saint Tugdual, the founding monk of Tréguier, since the 10th century.
Different construction periods, different architectural styles, three different towers, impressive vault height, tomb of Saint-Yves, recumbent figures, 17th-century Great Organ, 15th-century Gothic cloister… The nave is a listed historic monument.
The Cathedral Cloister
This is an exceptional radiating Gothic cloister built of granite in the 15th century. It is made up of 46 arcades beneath which are numerous recumbent figures (from the 15th to 17th centuries) and tombstones. The wooden vaulting is superb.
The iodine gardens
- The Gardens of Kerdalo, Prince Peter Wolkonsky’s most beautiful painting (1h30)
Set in the hollow of a valley plunging into the River Jaudy, the gardens have been designed as a living tableau, with a strong chromatic bias and water as the common thread. Ponds, waterfalls, a water staircase, a grotto, pavilions, shell bas-reliefs… let yourself be charmed by the soul and magic of this romantic setting, both natural and man-made, where Italian-style terraces, English-style gardens and a meadow sit side by side around the manor house. An unclassifiable treasure trove of 5,000 local species.
- The Kestellic Gardens : An exotic, intimate setting around a delightful manor house overlooking the Jaudy. Winding paths, pools, streams and waterfalls lead you to the banks of the river in a botanical and romantic setting.
PHILOMENN craft brewery
A brick building, typical of the industrial architecture of the early 20th century, on the banks of the Jaudy, houses the Philomenn vats. Open to the public, with tastings, tours and shop.
Character beers from Tregor, new hops and other recipes to discover at the brewery and in local festivals and bars.
Ernest Renan’s birthplace
Ernest Renan, born in 1823, spent his first fifteen years of life in a solid, picturesque timber-framed house dating from the late 16th century. A thinker and writer who demanded the right of free expression for historical and religious criticism, his influence was considerable. His home contains documents and memorabilia by the author of La Vie de Jésus and Souvenirs d’enfance et de jeunesse.
The oyster shack
For a number of years now, the oyster hut has been nestling in front of the Percevault oyster farm, in the little port of La Roche Jaune. Adjoining the river Jaudy, we want to share our little corner of paradise. Here you can sample our oysters, bred at the mouth of the Tréguier estuary. Accompanied by a small white wine, you’ll appreciate this moment, combining the pleasure of the taste buds with the enjoyment of a charming and peaceful place.
