Sited on a slope dominated by a castle ruin, this village has a fine parish enclosure. Three crosses bearing Christ and the two robbers mark the entrance. Inside the church, note the remarkable Renaissance rood-screen and large stained-glass window (1539) depicting the Resurrection. The ossuary (1640) is one of Brittany's finest. Above the font, the Grim Reaper looms before a peasant, a woman, a lawyer, a bishop, St Yves, a pauper and a rich man. The inscription reads: "I kill you all".
