The church presinct of the Vieux Bourg of Saint-Lormel

Credit : Fanch Galivel

This quite typical medieval religious site is made of a church, a church presinct and two millenarian yews.
This church went through the centuries! Built in a Romanesque style on the ruins of a Gallo-Roman building, it's dated from the 9th-11th centuries. It is dedicated to saint Lunaire, a Welsh monk who then became a bishop, who is no other than saint Lormel or saint Léonor! Its sculpted gates are very unique, as is the calvary (17th century). It will be restored, partly rebuilt, in the 15th, 18th, 19th and 20th centuries.
It was surrounded by the graveyard, which explains the presence of two millenarian yews, symbol of immortality since the Celts.
This ensemble is listed as an Historic Building.
