A chapel dating from the 15th century has been restored with quite geeky references. Effigies of Gremlins Gizmo, Alien and Goldorak took place in the walls of the chapel. Classified in 1911, it was during a restoration from 1993 to 1995 that we added the gargoyles replacing former ones missing. Architect Gwénolé France Congard can then rely on a single source, a drawing of the nineteenth century which is not precise enough. He appealed to sculptor Jean-Louis Boistel to create the 28 gargoyles.
