The facade of the 17C Church of St. Cornely (the patron saint of horned cattle) is relatively severe. His statue stands above the door withtwo oxen. The interior has a ships' keel curved and decorated wood ceiling with a wrought iron pulpit and choir grille (18C). The outside north door is capped by carved stonework reminiscent of a crown or northern Breton calvaries. A wedding party was in progress when we were there.
