Brittany 2012 : Brittany 12_03 : Holey Church

One walks past a screen of tall bushes. Suddenly, the land just drops away revealing this amazing church of Sainte-Barbe. Legend has it that a Breton Knight, Jean de Toulbodou from Locmalo, was passing by here while hunting, when he was caught in a vicious storm and nearly hit by lightning. He vowed to build a church if he survived the night. This is that church. It is built on a platform tight against the Roc’h ar marc’h bran cliff. It is at an altitude of 178 m, 100 m above the river Ellé. Wow!
