Impressive architecture and stained glass windows. Helpful attendant and entry is free. If you've got a head for heights then the tower is a must for the views

Lots of steps up a spiral staircase, waiting for people coming up or going down,puffing and panting on a hot day... But all worth it for the views. Great vista all round and its free! ( Donations )

Lovely inside and out. Magnificent organ case. The inside was rather dark with plain stone walls, we enjoyed an organ concert here.

Once we arrived at the top the views are stunning. We have some fantastic photos of the panoramic over Josselin's rooftops and of course the Chateau. Do wear sensible shoes ( I know that's stating the obvious ) but coming down is hazardous.

It's well worth climbing up the 139 (I think) narrow winding stone steps to the Bell Tower at the top of the Basilique. The view over Josselin and the chateau is stunning and it's free (at least it was in August when we visited).
