Sanctuaire - Théâtre de plein air de Pont Er Groah Route de Pont Er Groah
56400 STE ANNE D'AURAY
10:30 p.m. In the open-air theater of Pont Er Groah in Sainte-Anne d'Auray, more than 130 actors and extras in period costumes, with farm animals, horses, carts and carriages, in the reconstituted village of Ker Anna in the 17th century century (the village of Anne in Breton) will tell you the story of Yvon Nicolazic and Pierre de Kériolet who will forever mark the spirits and places….

To Yvon Nicolazic, humble Breton peasant, appeared holding a torch in her hand Sainte-Anne (the mother of the Virgin Mary and the grandmother of Jesus)
She will lead him to the field of Bocéno and will ask him to rebuild in this place an ancient chapel which was dedicated to him because she says "God wants me to be honored in this place" (chapel which will become in 1872 the current basilica Sainte- Anne d'Auray, high place of pilgrimage dear to the hearts of Bretons)
Pierre de Kériolet, a contemporary of Yvon Nicolazic whose alleged mission he openly mocked, nicknamed the "devil of Kerlois" was devoted to Satan and led a dissolute life.He was "miraculously converted" in 1635 during the exorcisms of the Loudun possessed affair where Cardinal de Richelieu had launched a dark witch hunt. He was even later ordained a priest and became an ardent defender of the poor.
Yvon Nicolazic and Pierre de Kériolet now rest in peace, opposite each other, in the current Sainte-Anne d'Auray basilica
Relive this mystery with the witnesses, confessors, first pilgrims of the time…until the homage of the Queen of England and the official and commemorative visit of Pope John Paul II in 1996
