    A wonderful church main one in town full of history of Brittany. There is a church here since 1125AD, the dukes of Brittany were buried here such as Claude de Rieux and his wife. You can still see the symbol of the Duchy of Brittany in the ceilings of the church by the war memorial chapel side on your left facing the altar.

    This is a wonderful castle, forewarned it is under renovation for the whole of 2012.

    However, was here couple months ago,and again yesterday. There is a castle here at least from 1374AD , wonderful place of the history of an old castle in dismay after the French revolution,and finally an American painter Alfred Klots (Baltimore MD) who bought it renovated, and allow American painters and other to come here to paint and improve their skills, the museum depicting these painting is awesome.

    now is in the hands of the local department council to keep it and protected. A nice visit to plan ahead for 2013.
