Calvary of the Guimiliau Parish Enclosure

Recommended
It dates back to 1581-1588 and includes over 200 figures. Under a big cross which bears the Virgin, Saint John, Saint Peter and Saint Yves, one can see 25 scenes from the Passion and a motif which represents the story of Katell-Gollet, above the Last Supper. The evangelists are represented at each end of the buttresses. A naive technique has been used for the figures which appear on the frieze.
