Brittany 2012 : Brittany 12_04 : Eglise Saint-Patern

This church is dedicated to one of the seven founding saint of Brittany. Patern founded a christian church in Vannes in 465 AD. The Normans destroyed the church in the 10th century. It was re-built and destroyed several times. The current structure was started in 1769 but couldn't be completed until 1826. It remained an important pilgrimage destination throughout the turmoil.
