Ernest Renan’s Bicentennial

On the occasion of the bicentennial of the birth of the famous Ernest Renan, we suggest that you set out on the trail of the city that saw him born. From his very modest childhood to his status as a highly respected scholar throughout Europe, you will understand the destiny of one of the “giants” of the century, sharing with Victor Hugo or Alexandre Dumas the greatest works of the 19th century. Sometimes a reactionary, sometimes a priest of “reason” and a philosopher of the uncertain, he was nevertheless a pioneer in the writing of works examining the Gospels in the light of scientific criticism. A stroll past the places he frequented is in order to better understand all the facets of this great character.


Tréguier, a small city of character

Tréguier abounds in rare resources! Its Saint-Tugdual cathedral is one of the most remarkable monuments. The city, rich in history, culture and nature, offers many opportunities for discovery and relaxation. It is an ideal place for those who wish to discover Brittany and its traditions. Tréguier is also known as the birthplace of the writer Ernest Renan. The house where he was born can be visited today, a real museum dedicated to his life.
