Chapel of the Holy Spirit
The Duke of Brittany, Jean II, crowned in Rennes in 1286, appreciated Auray. He would have founded a chapel of the Holy Sepulchre. It was located southeast of the current building. It still existed in the 18th century and housed a recumbent figure of Christ. The architects distinguish two phases of construction: in the 13th century, eastern part (the choir); in the 14th century, western part (the nave). A last mass was said in the chapel in 1790, then it was used as a military barracks. In 1831, it was acquired by the Ministry of War, which undertook work to house the soldiers. The chapel is totally disfigured. It will only regain its original appearance after restoration in 1994. The chapel of the Holy Spirit hosts an exhibition of contemporary art every year in the summer season.
