Here is the saint of this church! As I said before, although the church is dedicated to Saint Tugdual, it has always been important for the huge pilgrimages to honour Saint Yves (1250-1303). He was a priest in Tréguier and devoted himself to the poor and to justice, that is why he is today the patron saint of lawyers and notaries.
The church houses the original tomb of Saint Yves (second photo of this tip) and a reproduction of his funerary monument, made in the 19th century (the other pics).
