Tips

  • Les Guilvinistes

    The Calvaire de Tronoën unfolds in his groups of figures the life of Jesus Christ from birth to crucifixion.
    The scenes can be read counterclockwise from the right side of the east side. However, the chonological aspect is of secondary importance, since the arrangement of the scenes is primarily symbolic.
    Some figures are weathered by wind and the salty sea air. Most recently, the Calvaire was completely restored in the years 1998 - 1999.
    A detailed description of Calvaire and its iconography can be found on Wikipedia and at <tronoen.net/le-site-de-tronoen>
