Accessed through a triumphal arch surmounted by a Flamboyant Gothic balustrade and Calvary, this parish enclosure is the oldest in the district of Léon. Abutting the porch and tower, the 1619 ossuary is embellished with an unusual caryatid and motifs symbolising Death. The 14C-16C church has on its south front a historiated porch (c 1450), and its chancel is illuminated by fine 16C stained-glass windows depicting the Passion, Crucifixion and Resurrection. Interesting carved beams.
