The Sentier des douaniers is one of the most beautiful walks in Brittany. And with good reason: one of its sections allows hikers to admire the blockfield of pink granite. The rocks, with surprising shapes, are a real delight.
This trail's appeal is also in its view over the sea, changing according to the tides, as well as the flora. A treat for the eyes.
The chapelle Notre-Dame de la Clarté, or Chapel of Our Lady of Clarity, in Perros-Guirec, is built in the Gothic style, in pink granite from Saint Samsom and La Clarté-Ploumanac'h. Its construction began in 1445 but continued until 1766 when the sacristy was founded.
Before entering, take the time to admire the lintel of the south portal, which includes a Descent from the Cross and the Annunciation. On the vaulted porch you will also notice sculptures representing St. Anne, Mary and the four Evangelists.
Inside, you'll discover that this luminous chapel is aptly named. You will also see a crucifix dating from the fifteenth century, many statues of saints, and a series of 14 paintings evoking the Way of the Cross, by the painter Maurice Denis.
