  • It has a bell tower with a balcony framed by two turrets. The one on the right houses the staircase which provides access to the bell tower. Superbly decorated with buttresses, niches, coats of arms and pinnacles, it recalls the Notre-Dame church in Kernascléden. The asymmetry of the whole is particularly surprising. The Boutteville, lords of Faouët who strongly marked the city between 1340 and 1550 were the patrons for its construction. You have to go inside the building to admire the most remarkable element of the place: a splendid rood screen in polychrome wood. To date, it is one of the most beautiful polychrome rood screens in Brittany. The chapel also has a very beautiful set of 16th century stained glass windows illustrating the Passion, the life of Saint John the Baptist, a Tree of Jesse and the life of Saint Fiacre. At 500 meters, the Saint-Fiacre fountain consists of two pools connected by a seven-meter stone channel. Its architecture exceeds that of a traditional fountain. It may be the remains of a nursing home dating from the Middle Ages. Its water is traditionally known to cure skin diseases.
