A bit of history
St Gildas Chapel (16th century) is nested under a huge granite rock alongside the Blavet. This river flows across Côtes d'Armor and Morbihan. It is said that St Gildas and St Bieuzy, his disciple, settled in this natural cave in the 6th century. This place then became the heart of the Priory of La Roche sur Blavet as transformed in an oratory,. The inside kept the simplicity of a monastic cell. One can see the resonant rock used by St Gildas to call his believers. Another resonant rock stands at Notre Dame du Bon Voyage church (16th century).
