Dol-de-Bretagne Things to Do: 8 reviews and 34 photos
The great Porch was erected in the 14C but was finished under a 15C Bishop (Coeuret) who had power and funds. The opening and the side window arches are framed-in by carvings which seem to feature various saintly lives. The arches are recessed with carved voussoirs and there is fine stone tracery in the windows. The porch is large and heavily buttressed; the niches do not have statues. The doors into the church have recessed arches and a trefoil entry.
