Chapels - Kerdevot chapel

Kerdevot chapel

The chapel surrounded by a close was built to thank the Blessed Virgin for having put an end to the plague which decimated the people of Quimper and Elliant at the end of the 15th century.

Its magnificent 16th century altar piece is made of polychromic wood and associates the Flemish style to the Breton style.
