Departure from Roscoff and drive to Saint-Thégonnec via direct road.  

Saint-Thégonnec was once one of the Léon’s richest parishes. It owns an enclosure showing the results of the feeling of permanent rivalry between the neighbouring parishes. 

Two centuries of competition with the builders have resulted in a succession of buildings:  calvaries dating from the 16 C, triumphal arches, ossuary chapels... 

After the guided visit of Saint-Thégonnec continue to Guimillau and enjoy its famous calvary with its 200 sculptured characters.  

Drive back to Roscoff.
