Chapel of Tremalo, French Heritage monument to Pont aven

Rectangular in plan, the chapel seems to date back to the 15th century. At the beginning of the 16th century, flamboyant type Windows, larger that those of the primitive building, framed by pine nuts, were open on the south wall. A small Pinnacle to date stands on the Western Gable, surmounted by a Gothic arrow. The nave, lined with side aisles, is divided into six bays with Gothic arches. Beams and pits are carved figures of grotesque representative, among others, the sins. The polychrome wooden crucifix served as inspiration for Gauguin who represented him on two of his paintings (the Christ yellow
* Portrait of the artist to the Yellow Christ).
