Like the small town of Ambon itself, this church does not look particularly inspiring and will be by-passed by the majority of unsuspecting tourists who travel down that way. However, the church is a real beauty, having large portions dating from the 11th century, and a longer past that includes one of the first chapels to have been built in that part of Brittany. There is some dispute as to the age of the chapel, remnants of which were discovered when work was being done on the existing edifice, but it is certainly 6th century and may be as early as 428. There is also some slight indication that a Roman building may have preceded the chapel, and as church buildings were often built over the site of former shrines, it is not unlikely that there was some sort of building back in druidic times, as well. The church today is plain but has great atmosphere, its 1,000-year-old stonework exuding a subtle energy that often clings to places of a spiritual nature. On the walls of the nave can be seen some interesting frescoes, which I believe are thought to be 15th century. Their was a very knowledgable guide on hand this summer, and there is some information concerning the archaeological work available on panels. Worth stopping off for on the way to the beach, definitely!
