We had seen this chapel while walking in the Monts d’Arrées and so visited St Michel de Brasparts, a 17C Chapel, one afternoon. It is suggested that this used to be a prehistoric cult site, perhaps dedicated to the Sun, or it might have had a connection with the Druids. Whatever its history it was lonely and felt isolated.
The views are wonderful in all directions.
The hill was used by the Germans in WWII as a Bernhard Site – a controlling and tracking station for aircraft with a range of 400kms. There is no information about this on the hill but this website has information and photgraphs.

Lovely photo of the isolated chapel and it’s lovely simple stained glass who could believe it hides the military history you highlight…
