  • The Basilica our Lady of Briar, founded in the eleventh century was modified several times, it remains an example of the Gothic style flamboyant to the end of the fifteenth century, nevertheless retaining some vestiges of the primitive Romanesque sanctuary, in the square of the transept. Are kept inside the recumbent Olivier de Clisson and Marguerite de Rohan. The richness of the materials and the quality of the sculpture show the torque on the social and political power. Stained glass trace the discovery of the statue of the Virgin by a ploughman, took her home and who returned to the place of discovery, the current location of the Basilica.

  • A very beautiful panoramic view all up! Otherwise the Basilica itself has a beautiful baroque style and reminded me of Anglican Churches
