  • Pretty typical Church of Finistère. It was built behind a dike aui 15th century. A storm in 1896 was then ripped off the doors, dismantled the dike and water invades the chapel up to 50 centimeters in height. She would be on the site of a pagan site dedicated to Venus

  • Church built in stones of the country, not very high. It is located on the beach, she is beaten by the wind and spray. Calvary located next door should be maintained because the vegetation settled there. Unfortunately we could not visit the inside because it was closed.

  • Small well kept Chapel. Roof slate cut hand. Sailboat-shaped frame. The Chapel is unique since it 'back' in the ocean. Calvary outside. Point essential when coming from St. Guénolé to go to St Pierre and its famous lighthouse of Eckmuhl including or vice versa. Anyway if you go along the coast we must pass this Chapel. Attracted a lot of tourists, believers or not. Known also for his forgiveness on August 15 with an outdoor mass and a solid organization. The façade is slightly illuminated and the Tower of the Chapel is possible because a path is laid out even in a wheelchair. Outside the tourist can learn information about a control panel dedicated to the chapel. It is also not always open, so it's best to check beforehand to be able to visit it, and the tourist is welcomed with open arms. The district bears his name since we are talking very commonly "Joy".

  • This beautiful chapel is located directly on the sea, between Saint-Pierre and Saint-Guénolé. Sentinel supervisor the sea, it is dedicated to the Virgin. Sailors came to thank her for saving them from the storms. When forgiveness which takes place on 15 August, they marched barefoot and head. This building dates from the end of the 15th century. Sea side: the Bell Tower is on blind Gable, only three holes let in a little light. The short arrow is adjacent to two turrets dissymmetrical, octagonal and cylindrical. South side: two entries in brace with finials and brackets. To the East is blocked. One can notice a boat above the Bay, between the doors. The foothills are large sizes because the ground is very stable. Inside: Rectangular plan with a long and narrow opening. Coverage is oak hull of boat-shaped reversed. The altarpiece executed by Jean Le Bosser dates back to 1756. One can also notice the ex-votos hanging on the cross beams, in thanks to the Virgin. The roof was completely renovated in 1998. The building is classified on 7 December 1916. Calvary date of 1588 but it was restored in the 18th and 20th centuries.
