The Duke of Brittany, Jean II, crowned in Rennes in 1286, appreciates Auray. There he would have founded a chapel of the Holy Sepulcher. It was located southeast of the current building. It still existed in the 18th century and housed a recumbent figure of Christ. The architects distinguished two construction phases: in the 13th century, the eastern part (the choir); in the 14th century, western part (the nave).
A last mass is said in the chapel in 1790, then it is used as a military barracks. In 1831, it was acquired by the Ministry of War, which undertook works to house the soldiers. The chapel is totally disfigured. It will not regain its original appearance until after restoration in 1994.
The chapel of the Holy Spirit hosts an exhibition of contemporary art every summer season.
