Last weekend was the official unveiling of 13 new sculptures at La Vallée des Saints and a very grande fête it turned out to be on a lovely sunny afternoon.

Vallee des Saints

There are now over 70 magnificent statues in the fields gazing out over the Breton countryside; each in excess of 3m high and weighing in at several tons (check out my gallery of photos from previous visits).

An artisan market, sculpture demonstrations and talks were in full swing throughout the afternoon all accompanied by some rather charming  entertainment from another era…

It was great to see the place packed with interested locals and tourists, although I must admit to preferring the serenity and solitude of the site during the long winter months.

Lookng forward to seeing the next batch of granite giants soon…
