    The Church Of St. Leonard is located at the top of the town close to the City Hall and public garden. Along with the Church of Saint-Sulpice is a parish. Monks-was built by the Benedictine monks in the 12th century. But with the increasing population of Fougères from 1407 to 1636 years was reconstructed in the style of a flaming Gothic. During the French Revolution suffered, like all temples in the country. In the 19th century the Church was reconstructed and expanded the main façade, which adorns the 6-meter rose. Inside are the oldest stained glass in Brittany, dating from the 12th century. But most stained glass windows were smashed during the bombings of 1944 years. In 1959, they were rebuilt by stekolshhikom of Chartres Francois Lorinom.

    This is an old church with mostly modern windows, apparently due to World War 2. I particularly enjoyed the gargoyles on the exterior. You can visit the tower from 2pm to 7pm, it is quite a climb but ...  more »

    Beautiful church of style mainly Gothic, built from the 12th century, all located right next to the Town Hall of ferns, on a small hill overlooking the Castle. It offers a beautiful view on its top on the whole of the city and, more particularly, on the medieval castle of Fougères. Not to be missed, certainly! Tip: If you visit the Castle, your ticket will give you access to the Bell Tower of the Church. Otherwise, it will be 2 euros to predict (price recorded in July 2017).

    Beautiful church in the District of the upper town. Very nice Park. It is also a good starting point for visiting the city of FERNS.

    A beautiful church to the ubiquitous gargoyles. Climb into the Bell Tower and discover a unique view over the city and its surroundings. Night lighting of the façade, remade recently is remarkable
