Tréguier Things to Do: 29 reviews and 90 photos
Apparently, Tugdual was a Welsh monk who lived in the 5th century and went with other monks to evangelize pagan Bretagne. He is one of the seven saint founders of Breizh. His name has several writings: Tudgual, Tudwal, Tuzval, Tudal, Tual, Tutuarn and Pabu (= Father). He founded the monastery of Tréguier, which was the original core of the present church, if I'm not wrong. You find more information about him in the site below (in French; the English version does not provide many news).
As you see, he is not completely a historical character, since his story has many legendary features. This picture shows his statue inside the church.
