After a walk around Le Cloître St Thégonnec there was time to explore: the Church in Le Cloître St Thégonnec itself, and then the Church in Pleyber Christ which was hidden behind the circus when we arrived in the village.
The Church of St Pierre in Pleyber Christ is one of the Parish Enclosures and like many of these churches replaced an earlier building, thought to date from before the 1400s. Today’s church was built in the 16C, with the spire dating from 1551. The much later Ossuary was built in 1737, replacing an older building.
In the South Porch all the saints were carved by Roland Doré, as well as the figure of Christ giving keys to St Peter above the door. (I am not sure why there are three small sheep between the two figures…)
Inside there are some lovely details.
As always the ceiling is a joy, with the usual dragon heads holding the crossbars.
At the back of the church…
Do add this church to your list of explorations when you are in Brittany!
