favorite_borderAdd to favourites

13th edition from July 8th to September 22nd, 2019

Every year, Détour d'Art invites you to explore the countryside and discover the gems of religious architecture.

Around the corner, in the heart of villages or in the middle of nature, chapels, churches, basilicas and monasteries welcome you, revealing masterpieces classified as Historic Monuments. A true journey back in time, the visit recounts several centuries of history for admiring visitors. The small or great story is sometimes told by the guardian of the place.

From the basilica of Sainte-Anne d'Auray to the monastery of La Chartreuse, including the Sainte-Avoye chapel and the host of local chapels, Breton tranquility and identity reign in these modest mythical places.

Come and discover the history, architecture and decor of 22 historic monuments. The Détour d'Art card is available free of charge at Tourist Offices.

Inquiring minds, amateurs and music lovers, alone, with family or with friends, Détour d'Art has various offers for a discovery depending on one’s pace and taste: open or guided tours, treasure hunts, concerts.
