Landmarks and Historic Buildings

Rebuilt multiple times, the Eglise Notre Dame de Locmaria has a tumultuous history. First built in the 15th century, it was rebuilt in the 17th century and sacked by English invaders before being rebuilt again in the 1900s after its steeple fell down during a violent storm which destroyed much of the roof. The church today is built from beige granite and has some pretty stained glass windows and an altar crafted from bronze and granite.
