Chapel Saint-Fiacre to Le Faouet

le Faouet, chapelle Saint-fiacreLe Faouët, small town of 3160 inhabitants, capital of canton, on a height, had title of Barony and possessed a castle besieged in 1342 by the English of the party of Jean de Montfort, then in 1595 by the fierce partisan Fontenelle.

The chapel of Saint-Fiacre, a mile south of Faouet, is a curious piece of architecture from the 15th century; but the interest focuses on the rood screen, with its rich pendants, unique perhaps merit and too neglected. He was executed the year 1480. The stained glass window of the south transept is the life of saint Fiacre, painted in 1552. At the top of this window are the weapons of the Lord of Bouteville, baron du Faouët.

The chapel Sainte-Barbe, in the 1 kilometer 1/2 North - le Faouët Eest, is a monument no less curious, founded in 1489. The position of this Chapel is the most picturesque. Attached to the side of the mountain called Rohou Marc'hbran, it as hanging over the Valley of the Elle. It succeeds by of large and beautiful granite staircases whose levels climb the rock, and then descend the opposite ramp to the door of the chapel posed as a nest between rocks.

Le Faouët was attacked by the chouans in 1795. Common, blue of Prussia paper mill.
