The Calvary at Notre-Dame-de-Tronoen

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

This Calvary dating from 1610 is an admirable piece of work. On the base are groups of figures illustrating scenes from the Passion. In a niche is a statue of St Thegonnec, accompanied as always by a wolf. The platform is surmounted by a cross with two crosspieces supporting figures and two simpler crosses for the two thieves.

This is a very popular tourist attraction, probably has been since it was built in 1610.

Many thanks for visiting my gallery

Best wishes. Gordon
