Geocache Description:


Que serait la Bretagne sans ses chapelles cachées au cœur de la campagne? Cette chapelle solitaire est l'une des 8 chapelles de la paroisse de Cléguérec.

Édifiée en 1646, la chapelle a remplacé un sanctuaire plus ancien. Bâtie en chaux et en sable, le monument comprend un minuscule clocheton et huit statues, notamment celle de Saint-Gildas, le Christ, la Vierge, etc. En 1968 et 1973, des projets de démolition de la chapelle pour des raisons de visibilité motivent des fidèles du quartier afin de sauvegarder l’édifice. Des travaux de restauration conséquents ont été réalisés. Les murs ont été dégagés du lierre et la toiture a été refaite.

 

What would Brittany be without its chapels hidden away in the heart of the countryside? This lonely chapel is one of 8 chapels in the parish of Cléguérec.

Built in 1646, the chapel replaced an older sanctuary. Built in lime and sand, the monument includes a tiny pinnacle and eight statues, including that of St. Gildas, Christ, the Virgin, etc. In 1968 and 1973, projects to demolish the chapel motivated local people to save the building. Substantial restoration work was done. The walls were clear of ivy and the roof was replaced.
