Plougonven Enclos Paroissial

The Church of St Yves in Plougonven is another of the Enclos Paroissial in Brittany. We had just finished a walk around Le Relecq and needed a cup of coffee which we hoped to find in Plougonven.

The Calvary is extraordinary – I could have spent hours looking at the carvings.

Inside the church were many statues of the saints, and the usual barrel-vaulted ceiling, although not painted blue this time.
