THE PARISH CLOSES TOUR - RELIGIOUS MONUMENTS
Built by local craftmen between the XIVth and the XVIIIth centuries the Parish Close is a group of architectural religious buildings including a church, ossuary, calvary, churchyard and triumphal arch.
It is surrounded by a stone wall which demarcates and protects the holy territory. The Parish Close is a multicoloured place made up of stone, glass and wood which comes alive as daylight moves round and will take you back to the end of the Romanesque and the luxuriant Renaissance and Baroque periods.
The Landivisiau area tour. 90km, 10 stopovers combining the well-known Parish Closes and those that would deserve to be better known. You'll gaze at them in wonder !
The historical centre of Roscoff holds an exceptional architectural heritage. 24 interpretive panels are available all around the town. A map presenting a self-guided tour of Roscoff's heritage with the different panel locations is at your disposal.
Children are not left out. "Head up, following lilas steps" is a playfull booklet for young (7-10 years olds) in which little Lilas and her cat Pompom take the reader into a 1h30 tour around the town.
