  • Saint-Tugdual in Morbihan owes its name to a Welsh Saint emigrated to Armorica: Saint Tutwall. The latter nicknamed Pabu, that is to say "father", inspired a legend making him an imaginary pope known as Leon the Breton. Also imaginary or very real the coming of King Morvan to Saint-Tugdual? We have the right to think that this is a reality. He is said to have stayed in Kerminisy, whose name means "place of asylum". In the middle of the countryside watered by several streams flowing into the Aër before it joins the Ellé, stands a little architectural gem: the Saint-Guen chapel. It is also the starting point of a charming hiking circuit. In the village of Saint-Tugdual, the church shelters a fine example of contemporary art "The washing of the feet", monumental fresco produced by the artist Yannig Guillevic in 2006. We are not indifferent to the power released by this work .
