A walk in the footsteps of farmer Yvon Nicolazic. Twice, Saint Anne appeared to him. In 1625, he unearthed a statue of her. The impact of this story and the influx of pilgrims made the sanctuary what it is today.

Departure point: Mairie, heading east towards Vannes/Mériadec.

4) After 400 m, turn left towards Lomelec (Pluneret). In Lomelec, turn right onto a farm track. Auray appears on the horizon, separated by the Loch valley. It's easy to imagine the troops of Charles de Blois and Duguesclin marching through the marshes to attack the château d'Auray (1364).

5) At Gumenen, turn left onto a local road, reach Kerroussin, leave it on the left and turn right towards Kerloury. After 500 m, take the path on the left between a hedge and a farmhouse.

Turn left, then right at the intersection (if the road is flooded, take the alternative at point

6) Continue straight ahead, past a riding school to rue Calloc'h. Turn left, then right at the intersection. If the road is impassable, cross Kerniolen and stay on the road. After 350 m, turn right onto Chemin du Porho (or Chemin des Pélerins). At end of road, turn right into Rue Calloc'h.

7) After 50 m, take a small alley on the left. Cross the Parc Cogan housing estate, turning right each time. At the end, turn left into rue du Parc.

8) At the roundabout, turn left into Camborne Park. Cross the park (toilets nearby). At the parking lot, take rue De Gaulle. Turn left towards the Sanctuaire.

9) Cross the sanctuary site. Opposite the Memorial, turn left, then right towards the statue of Sainte Anne. Go straight ahead along a hedge. At the end, cross the hedge and join the path alongside the Necropolis. At the crossroads, take the Pont Er Groah path to the right, then at the end, the Rue de Locmaria to the right to find the Mairie.
