Awakening in the Valleys

Saint-Chéron church in Querrien

The sun is slowly rising over the town and its magnificent Latin cross church. Dating from the 18th century, this church with its remarkable woodwork is one of the treasures of the Ellé Valley, and stands not far from the river of the same name. The first rays of sunlight illuminate the stones of this building and its bell tower is rocked by their soft light.

Saint-Pierre-aux-Liens Church in Mellac

Continue along the Vallée de l'Isole towards Quimperlé. In the market town of Mellac, the golden light of the rising sun plays against the steeple of the church of Saint-Pierre-aux-Liens, rebuilt in the 19th century by the diocesan architect Joseph Bigot. Next to it, a Christianised stele dating from the Iron Age and a remarkable calvary have earned it a place on the list of historic monuments.
