The regional tour of Brittany links 45 sites that perpetuate the memory of Saint Columban and his Irish companions. The 1700km route is divided into five parts, which can be followed one after the other or indiscriminately. 
Starting in Blain, this second part leads to Locminé via a diversion south of the Loire before returning to Brittany.
Alternating between coastal and inland routes, this great Celtic loop combines the traditional Tro Breizh, which links the towns of the seven founding saints of Brittany, with the more personalised Tro Breizh of Saint Columban - two pilgrimages in one.


With Saint Colomban, the route offers the opportunity to discover Brittany in all its diversity.
