Another lovely walk in Brittany!
Plouyé is a rural community in rolling countryside, south of Huelgoat. It was here that the movement known as the Bonnets Rouge started in 1675, a revolt against taxation which had class warfare connotations in Brittany, but that was in the past. We parked at the Church on a clear and peaceful day and set off down the road.
Just beyond the calvary at a crossroads we turned off to look at the 17C Chapel of St Maudez. There is a Pardon at the Chapel at the end of July each year. The saint was perhaps Irish originally, and is also remembered in Cornwall, in St Mawes.
We continued down quiet lanes to find another Chapel, this time venerating St Mathurin, a missionary and healer.
The Chapel of St Mathurin is 19C and situated at the end of a green lane, alongside a river and a small pond, and because it is on a hill there is apparently a crypt. The site is peaceful, but the church was locked. The Calvary is 16C and the Church has a Pardon in May.
And off into the countryside again, looping back to Plouyé.
The Church of St Pierre was rebuilt in the 19C, apart from the spire, which is 17C. Sadly it was locked.
Another wonderful day.
