A Celtic nation and once an independent kingdom, Brittany has a history and culture to match its wild, exotic beauty. With a coastline stretching over 3000 kilometers, it shelters unique and unexpected marine life in its waters and the largest concentration of lighthouses in the world on its shores. Our cameras explore Brittany to uncover its past and present. The chateaus of Brittany are as legendary as their inhabitants, both famous and infamous. Anne of Brittany was wife to two kings and the richest woman in Europe in her day. Gilles de Rais, better known as Bluebeard, was a companion of Joan of Arc – but a notorious serial killer in his spare time. Alongside its chateaus are its churches, sanctuaries for an unparalleled collection of sacred art in its own unique Breton style. Discover a bountiful land with a fascinating heritage too often overlooked.
