This is a pretty church with nice glass, but the interior is rather dark. Some interesting tombs. Time did not permit us to climb the tower. In hindsight, we probably should have since we were there on a perfect day for photos.

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.

This church dates back to Medieval times and offers a wonderful feel for the history of Josselin. It's impressive to take the time to appreciate all that has gone on while this church has been standing. So much was destroyed with multiple wars, religious conflicts...More
