Internal L´Espace is covered d´une panelled frame cradle. L´edifice l´exterieur presents a particularly neat Renaissance style Western massif. Built in medium and large unit of granite, it is open d´un Portal architectural and topped d´un quartered Square Tower d´une Tower in work with a staircase in masonry. This staircase serves half a piece in right anterior l´angle, southern-lit by a skylight built in Renaissance style. It also serves l´acces to the Bell Tower in the Middle d´une gateway at the level of the railing. The North and South elevations are open Bay d´une arches. A stone schist bearing an inscription engraved in Gothic lettering (difficult to read) is prepared at two-thirds of the height of the south wall, near l´angle Southeast. The flat chevet is blind and the gable decorated with figurative Spades. The chapel Saint-Herbot had a cemetery at the beginning of the 19th century (from the States section of the cadastre of 1826). Analysis of the building and the presence of an inscription in Gothic characters (not deciphered) suggest a construction in the first half of the 16th century, and a reconstruction of the Western massif in 1569 (date on the Bell Tower).
