Take the time to stroll through the streets of the town, which is home to one of the most beautiful cathedrals in Brittany and a majestic cloister (the best preserved in the region). 57 half-timbered houses, one of which sheltered Ernest Renan during his childhood, are some of the monuments that have contributed to the town’s fame.
Tréguier is also a city of spirit and generosity, of meditation and critical sense, which over the centuries inspired men of letters, men of dress and men of God from Saint-Tugdual to Saint Yves and Ernest Renan to Anatole Le Bras.
