Sainte-Anne-d'Auray Morbihan, France 3604

Sainte-Anne-D'Auray est situé dans le Morbihan, en Bretagne, et dépend du canton d'Auray, commune voisine d'où elle tire son nom.

Le sanctuaire et la basilique.
L’histoire de Sainte-Anne d'Auray est très lié à la religion chrétienne.
Sainte-Anne-d’Auray (ou Keranna en breton) est le principal lieu de pèlerinage de la Bretagne. On y vient depuis 1625, pour commémorer l'apparition de Sainte Anne, grand-mère maternelle de Jésus-christ, à Yves Nicolazic. Tous les étés, le 26 juillet, un pèlerinage y a lieu : le pardon de Sainte Anne.
On compte une moyenne de 800 000 pèlerins par an à Sainte-Anne-d'Auray.
Jean-Paul II y est venu en pèlerinage le 20 septembre 1996 où il a rassemblé 150 000 personnes, première visite d'un pape en Bretagne.
Sainte-Anne-d'Auray a longtemps fait partie de la paroisse et commune de Pluneret. La paroisse de Sainte-Anne d'Auray est née le 1er août 1937. Elle a été fondée en regroupant le domaine du sanctuaire, l'ancien Keranna et plusieurs villages à la paroisse de Pluneret. D'autres villages ont été pris à la paroisse de Plumergat.
Ce n'est que le 26 février 1950 que Sainte-Anne-d'Auray a également été érigée en commune.

More About France

France is affectionately referred to as "the Hexagon" for its overall shape.French history goes back to the Gauls, a Celtic tribe which inhabited the area circa 300BC until being conquered by Julius Caesar.The Franks were the first tribe to adopt Catholic Christianity after the Roman Empire collapsed. France became an independent location in the Treaty of Verdun in (843 AD), which divided up Charlemagne's Carolingian Empire into several portions.The French monarchy reached its zenith during the reign of Louis XIV, the Sun King, who stood for seventy-two years as the Monarch of all Monarchs. His palace of Versailles and its Hall of Mirrors are a splendid treasure-trove of Baroque art.The French Revolution ended the rule of the monarchy with the motto "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity!" On July 14th, 1789 angry mobs stormed La Bastille prison and began the Revolution in which Louis XVI, his wife Marie-Antoinette and thousands of others met the guillotine.One decade after the revolution, Napolean Bonaparte seized control of the Republic and named himself Emperor. His armies conquered most of Europe and his Napoleonic Code became a lasting legal foundation for concepts of personal status and property.During the period of colonization France controlled the largest empire in the world, second only to Britain.France is one of the founding members of the European Union and the United Nations, as well as one of the nuclear armed nations of the world.Text by Steve Smith.
