Notable local church architecture
Just south of Roscoff through the artichoke fields (6 km via D769), the unassuming town of Saint-Pol-de-Léon harbours two notable examples of Breton ecclesiastical architecture. Built between the 13th-16thC from local stone, the former Cathédrale de Sainth-Paul is a remarkably harmonuous and elegant building, its facade flanked by towers and the interior decorated with fine stained glass and 16thC choir stalls.
A short walk downhill, the 14th-15thC Chapelle de Kreisker boasts the original Breton Kreisker-style spired belfry widely copied throughout the region. This Gothic extravaganza is 75 m high, with views across the countryside to the coast and south to the Monts d’Arrée.
