A Casino and a Chapel at Fréhel!

So how about my post title unique yes, how about mixing in one post a casino and a chapel! Both are within meters of each other facing the ocean at Fréhel especially at Sables-d’Or-les-Pins resort! I need to tell you about these two.

This one was nice looking after we saw the casino but will tell you first. 

The Chapelle Notre Dame des Sables started with a  temporary wooden chapel was built between the large and small arches, a wooden chapel was nevertheless built on the site of the current chapel on land bequeathed to the bishopric of St Brieuc and Tréguier by Mme Fourel, widow of ‘an architect and resident of Sables d’Or. July 29, 1956, the chapel was inaugurated.

Above the high altar, a very beautiful Madonna and Child, very evocative of maternal love. To the left of the choir, a fresco of Notre Dame des Sables ( Our Lady of the Sands) . At the back of the chapel, an unsigned painting of the martyr of Saint Sebastian represented in an unusual posture which does not lack originality.  The very luminous stained-glass windows They represent the different sacraments (baptism, order, Eucharist, extreme unction) as well as very symbolic reminders of the passion of Christ. The setting and its view of the sea at the end of the putting green, the sobriety of the chapel, everything contributes to serenity and meditation.
