  • The Saint Samson chapel was built between 1575 - 1631. The church is typical of the 'Beaumanoir' style of architecture that originated in Lannion, with its bell-tower wall flanked by another tower crowned with a cupola, that houses the staircase leading to the belfry. Access to the chapel is via a field and you can see, on the right-hand side of the pathway, a fountain, so characteristic of Breton chapels. A Christianised standing stone, dating back to 3000 BC, faces the entrance to the chapel.
