  Notre-Dame-de-Joie cathedral
by black_mimi99

Located near the post, it is the work of Claude de Rohan, the fourth son of Jehan de Rohan II, builder of the present castle. The carved decoration on the amounts of this entry emphasizes the participation of Rohan (fretted columns decorated with twins, the symbol of Rohan). The original church was dedicated to St. Ivy, head of the city. Forgiveness of Our Lady of Joy is held annually on 12 September or the following Sunday the 12th.
