Lampaul-Guimiliau Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 38 photos

Compromised by the Rain

The second town that we visited in our "Parish Close Day" lay beyond a low set of mountains (the Arree) from Pleyben, past Montagne St.-Michel (not to be confused with Mont. St.-Michel which is in Normandy) quickly reaching Lampaul-Guimiliau (pop. 1.5K). Its church stands inside a stone wall enclosure with wrought iron gates.Its tall belfry has a stumpy top, the spire having been amputated by a lightning strike long ago. The rain arrived with us, making details hard tophotograph bothinside and out. Luckily it was intermittent.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:The Church is finer than the Calvary
  • Cons:Only for Church Tourists
  • In a nutshell:All fine examples of Breton Church Accoutrements
  • Last visit to Lampaul-Guimiliau: May 1992
