La Gacilly is synonymous with the late Yves Rocher, who created and ran his cosmetics empire from this charming Morbihan village – but it’s also renowned for an annual photo festival, France’s largest outdoor festival of its kind.
Focusing specifically on the environment and the challenges faced by our planet, this is an arts event fully integrated with the surrounding landscape. Its integral exhibition displays around 100 large-format photos, taken by well-known artists and amateur photographers alike and dotted around La Gacilly’s quaint cobbled streets. Whether the focus is on thousand-year-old forests, oceans or civilisations, there’s always a photographer on hand to demonstrate the threats they face. And for this, the festival’s 15th year, photographs will tackle the age of adolescence as their uniting theme.
A thought-provoking experience to include on your summer holiday in Brittany.
