Monday saw a visit to Saint-Anne d'Auray, a shrine to the mother of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The web-site guide is here.
My motivation for going was no more than I had seen it on a map and thought 'that might be interesting'.
The whole village is given over to the shrine and it dominates all, far and wide. The Sanctuary is largely victorian with a very impressive array of confessionals as you enter. It has ever been that pilgrimage sites attract confessions. But when I saw the confessionals resplendent with TV screens, I have to admit that my heart sunk a little.
