Feasts of patron saints of churches, at which an indulgence is granted and where pilgrims gather to spend the day in prayer, beginning with early Mass and a procession around the church. There are five kinds:

  • Saint Yves at Treguier, the Pardon of the poor
  • Our Lady of Rumengol, the Pardon of singers
  • Saint Jean-du-Doigt, the Pardon of fire
  • Saint Ronan, the Pardon of the mountain
  • Saint Anne de la Palude, the Pardon of the sea

The Pardons begin in March and end in October and are most frequent between Easter and Michaelmas Day (September 29,).
