Pushing open the doors of the Templar church of Brélévenez
On the heights of the city, overlooking the coastline and the countryside of the Pink Granite Coast, stands the Trinity Church of Brélévenez: impossible to miss! But if the visit of this holy place dating from the Middle Ages is a must to do in Lannion, it must be deserved and to reach it, you will have to overcome the 140 steps leading to its entrance. Far from being a way of the cross, the granite staircase crosses very pretty stone houses typical of Brittany.
Once you arrive at the top of the Crec’h Tanet hill where the church is located, you will be able to enjoy a superb panorama over the roofs of Lannion, the Leguer and the villages in the surrounding area such as Ploubezre or Ploulec’h.
The rest of the visit takes place in the church where superb colored statues, two altarpieces, numerous granite sculptures as well as a crypt await you. As you walk around the building, you can admire the mix of architectural styles ranging from the 12th century to the early 15th century. As you walk along the stone walls of the church, a whole part of Brittany’s history comes to light.
