Saint Quirin Chapel

Village De St Guerin
56400 Brech
Dated from the 17th century, the chapel contains what is considered to be the most beautiful classical altarpiece in Morbihan. Built in tufa and Maine marble, this masterpiece, listed as a Historic Monument, is attributed to the Laval masters. The chapel is placed under the patronage of Saint Quirin who is said to be a martyred bishop. The site is a typical Breton sanctuary and a stopover for pilgrims on their way to Ste-Anne d'Auray. Formerly, the chapel and in particular its fountain were very popular. A rare document known as the "notebook of miracles of Saint Quirin" attests to the popularity of the sanctuary. In this register, pilgrims recorded the fulfillment of their vows, mainly healings. Open Tuesday, 2:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., from 7/07 to 25/08 (with reception), and every day from 1/06 to 20/09 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Christmas holidays. A guided tour is offered on August 6 Pardon the 4th Sunday in July.
