Plourin les Morlaix

We had walked round Le Relecqlooked at the Abbey, visited Plougonven – I was cold and gasping for a coffee! Plourin les Morlaix was only meant to be a coffee stop but we were diverted by the Church, another of the Enclos Paroissial – this is just a photographic taste – I was churched out for the day!

The Church of Notre Dame of the 17C replaced an older building.

As usual, the details were eyecatching. The Font is 16C.

The choir is 15C, restored in 1673, so I assume these choir stalls date from 15C.

The tree at the entrance a Taxus Baccata, is reputed to be 1,000 years old…

And so back to Sizun at the end of a very busy day.
