5/36.- Breton Church Enclosures, Sainte Marie du Menez Hom


The churches will be found in the center of towns and villages. The chapels are sometimes hidden in the countryside. Sainte Marie Du Menez Hom ("Our Mountain") is the chapel of a tiny village near one of the highest mountains of the region, which on a bright day offers a staggering panorama. Today the small village is cut in two by a busy road, but in the early morning mist, it has lost none of its rural charm. Breton steeples are most often built with openings to offer less resistance to the gales.
