Saint-Brieuc, Saint-Malo, Saint-Evarzec, Saint-Pol-de-Léon … If you walk in Brittany, you will quickly be surprised by the number of municipalities that have adopted the name of a saint. In this land marked by Catholicism, the saints are indeed legion. To pay tribute to all these men of faith, a project a little crazy was also born in 2012 in Carnoët, in the center
from Brittany.

A sort of Breton Easter Island, the Valley of the Saints has given itself the mission to host a thousand granite statues with the effigy of the Breton saints who founded the Breton parishes. On the occasion of the arrival of the statue
of Saint Dewi in the region, the 124th so far, 20 minutes test your knowledge of those saints who have forged the history of Brittany.
