Not far from the center of Roscoff, the port town in the north of Finistère with its ferries to UK, is this small chapel sitting on a rock, overlooking the sea. I could not find much about the chapel, besides that it is quite frequented in summer (I had noticed that) and that it has its own pardon, a Breton form of pilgrimage. Without knowing any details about the chapel, I had the feeling that it is looking out for the seamen, telling them good-bye, greeting them when they are back and provide a place for mourning in case they are never seen again.

It is a lovely small piece of treasury, sitting on its rock with the great view on the sea and the town of Roscoff.Unfortunately it was not possible to enter the chapel, so I can only offer views on the outside and the view from there.

  1. Thanks forth comment. It is indeed quite a charming place. Coming from Roscoff one can see the chapel for a while. And then walking up the few meters suddenly the view on the ocean opens – quite an experience.
