The sumptuous decor of Sainte-Barbe
Le Faouët (56)
If you’re frightened of storms, Sainte-Barbe chapel is the best place to hide! Sainte-Barbe, who has given her name to Le Faouët’s place of worship, is believed to have power over fire and thunder. The chapel was built by a nobleman who was saved from a storm through her intervention. It has a fairy-tale appearance: hidden away deep in the woods, the chapel stands proud at the top of its stone steps. Inside the building you can admire the stained-glass windows and the vaulting, dating from the 16th century.
