Tréguier Things to Do

  • Chateau De La Roche Jagu

    About 6 miles from Treguier is the charming 15th century fortified manor of La Roche Jagu. Made of the local harmonious stone and in a delightfully picturesque setting overlooking the river Trieux it is well worth a visit if you are in the area or passing through.Open from spring to autumn I believe the chateau is closed during winter.

    Not only did the ancient local Bretons master woodcarving, they also learned the art of carving the local granite. The church has many early examples of 14C work in stone. Look at the capitals of the columns especially in the nave and North transept and note the stoup there. Later (15C) in marble was the tomb of Jean V as well as the tracery of the...

  • Visit the Tombs of Jean V and St. Ives...

    The most important monument in the Cathedral is that of Jean V Duke of Brittany located in the North aisle and the adjacent Holy Sacrament Chapel. This expansion was built by the Duke (died 1442) who wished to be buried next to the Saint (died 1303). This area continues to be devoted to St. Ives patron of lawyers and notaries. We visited a week...

  • St. Tugdual Cathedral: Study the...

    Scattered through the church are many examples of old Breton wood carving. Be sure to look in the ambulatory and its chapels (items 1 &2) and in the S. transept (items 3 &4). We are sorry that #3 is so dark (there is a better picture with mikebond). This shows St. Ives between the Rich Man and the Poor Man and is much venerated (15C).

  • St. Tugdual Cathedral: See the Inner...

    The church was built in slow stages from 13-15C and although of consistent style and harmonious, the width of the basy and the piers vary in spacing and form with Gothic arches, triforium and clerestory. Most striking is the apse which has evolved an elaborate frieze below its trigorium with a small echoing on at the clerestory (remember this is...

    This tip contains photos that don't fit into any other tip. The first show the bishop's throne. The second depicts paintings of notaries (remember that Saint Yves is their patron saint). However, the most interesting are the last three: they portray some miséricordes ("misericords" in English). The word originally means "mercy", but here it...

  • Saint-Tugdual - inside: Saint Yves

    Here is the saint of this church! As I said before, although the church is dedicated to Saint Tugdual, it has always been important for the huge pilgrimages to honour Saint Yves (1250-1303). He was a priest in Tréguier and devoted himself to the poor and to justice, that is why he is today the patron saint of lawyers and notaries.The church houses...

Tréguier Restaurants

  • Great Service!

    The La Krampouzerie Restaurant is on the riverside at Place du General de Gaulle. There are many restaurants in Treguier but this one we found to be very friendly and hospitable. As we were based in the Marina it was very local to our boat, and great for just having a coffee or beer. The owner's name is Yann Fiblec, and he and his staff - Nico and...

    Preserved steam locomotive in  Paimpol

    by Geoff_Wright Written Oct 10, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Visit the Tourist Information Office and pick up a guide to bus routes. The Guide covers the routes from Lannion to Saint Marlo, but there's only one bus that connects with Treguier, and that's Route No 7. An example, catch the 0931 departure for Paimpol (arrives 09.59) and that will cost you only Eu2.00. (as at August 2013). The buses are on time, and have overhead monitors that tell you exactly what the next stop is, so it doesn't matter about asking the driver to tell you - and he probably doesn't speak English either, LOL!

    The bus stops on the Rue du Port, opposite the Restaurant.

Tréguier Shopping

  • Not Just For Headaches!

    I'm only allowed to go sailing 'abroad' if I promise to buy my wife some perfume! On my first Treguier visit I found a few pharmacies, but none of them sold the perfumes I was looking for - except this one. The lady in the shop speaks good English and will show you a variety of testers before you decide on the perfume you require. Fortunately I...

  • Local Supermarket

    The "Super-U" Supermarket is located up the Boulevard Jean Guehenno, up the steepish hill from the Pont Canada roundabout about 1.6km SW of the marina. Walking back down the hill is much easier of course! . Milk, bread, local cheeses, wines and fresh vegetables, amongst other things. You'll find almost everything here, and probably much more!...

Tréguier Local Customs

  • Kissing on the cheeks

    When people greet each other upon meeting, they practise the typical Breton custom of kissing on the cheeks (se faire la bise). The norm is that two kisses are exchanged; a single kiss is possible, but not as common. So, cheek kissing is not so problematic in Tréguier as in other Breton towns.

  • Paraphenalia Used in a Pardon

    Before we visited Brittany , we were only vaguely aware of the Pardons through paintings of Gaugin and the Pont Aven school; so we did not plan our trip to coincide with one. When we arived at St-Tugdual the church was decked out with portable old tapestry banners and small carved polychromed statues of unidentified saints and the altar before the...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    No, of course not, you can walk there, have fun and enjoy the wonderful cathedral and its CLO?TRE, A SOURCE OF TRANQUILITY....

    But as you can see in the photo: the coast line of Brittany is very craggy and jaggy and the tides could surprise you while climbing the rocks, which indeed is very attractive and don't break a leg.....

    Especially with children: take care or go for a safe, sandy beach....

  • The Marina

    The Marina at Treguier has been rebuilt in the past few years, although the pontoons appear not to have altered too much. The Breau du Port and the surrounding area has been rejuvinated, and is much improved. Marina fees are very reasonable, and include access to the washroom and showers. You no longer have to insert tokens to access showers, it's...

    The Information Centre in Treguier is not perhaps where you might expect it to be, but if, like the majority of visitors you arrive by boat, then it couldn't be closer! It is located at the rear of the Marina Office, on the Rue Marceline Berthelot. The staff here may be seasonal, but they were all very helpful, and speak several languages...
