  • The philosopher, historian and philologist Ernest Renan (1823-1892), initially intended to become a priest, left the seminary at the age of 22 years to devote himself to writing and became a scholar respected in France and Europe (Professor at the College of France, academician, an officer of the legion of honor). Free thinker, claiming the right to criticize the history and religion influence was considerable. Born at Tréguier, he lived until the age of 15 in this beautiful House, whose construction dating from the end of the 16th century, is typical of the architecture of the Trégor. He never parted from this House and continued his life to come for vacation. It is now classified in the title of monuments historical and transformed into a museum dedicated to Ernest Renan. The House has a front façade on street with corbelled, yellow-ochre color of Brown timber-framed with a back cover granite. It has a small garden at the rear. You can see:-1 ° floor, restored with authentic furniture, his study at the College of France, of which he was Director. -its native bed closed and fireplace room. -small room school with desks, housed under the eaves. -many items that belonged to him as well as documents of the time. On the ground floor his mother ran a grocery store. Unfortunately, the Museum is not open all year round and it is difficult to visit out of season. It is necessary to inquire about dates and times indeed, from 1st October visits are by appointment and on certain dates. The reopening date is the 1st of April. The price of admission is €3,5 / adult. Year-round entertainment and exhibitions take place. The visit to this museum is for a certain informed public. The street of this historic house front is to see, in the same way as the other typical to discover in the small streets of the old town houses. In addition to the documentation available at the tourist information office, you can see Tripadvisor photos and comments on the "Cathedral St Tugdual" and the "Place of the Martray" to prepare your visit of Tréguier.

  • From 1 October visits are no longer than by appointment... We were lucky today, we were both in the Museum and fully enjoyed the visit. Beautiful setting and lovely garden. It remains for me only to read the biography of Ernest RENAN and some other writings of this great person.

Worth the visit, only one is interested or not has the life of Ernest Renan... The garden is very nice, to complete the visit to beauty. While this place has like any opening times Museum, so please
