French family restaurant Les Trois Soleils of Plescop !!

I saw this written in a piece of a previous post, and decided for the memories’ sake of my family to have it in my blog. After all, as said, my blog is a compilation of mine and my family’s history on this world. This is in quant lovely Plescop very near Vannes our capital city of my beautiful Morbihan dept 56, and lovely Bretagne, and in my belle France !

Over the years we came with the family here and the friendly welcome, good food ,and great prices made us return again. My dear late wife Martine love it. We have not been back since her passing but look forward to the sentimental trip again soon.

Our last memorable visit to Les Trois Soleils of Plescop was in early 2018. We passed by it every day and always remembered it, just not yet back.


We went for lunch in our humble simple country French restaurant Les Trois Soleils, in Plescop just outside Vannes. This is a worker’s lunch place and real local foods and customs. We love it for the friendly country service, the good food and the good family ambiance. There is a menu formule set of second dish and dessert or first dish and second dish for 11,50€ including drink of beer, wine, sodas or water. Or the full whammy of entrée (first dish), plat (second dish), dessert ,and drink (beer, wine, sodas, water) all for 13,30€ which we split as in the family. I had the full swing !!!

The Church Saint Pierre aux Liens of Plescop !!

I have written on it before, but was not able to go in even if passed by here often on my way to my former job. I was on my local road warrior tour today and lucky to found it open at last. I feels it deserve more so here is my new post and pictures on the Church Saint Pierre aux Liens of Plescop.

Plescop is surrounded by the towns of Grand-Champ, Meucon, Saint-Avé, Vannes, Ploeren, Pluneret and Plumergat. It is only 6 km from Vannes, and 23 km from my house. In my way on the D779 and D135 roads! Plescop is an old primitive parish. It is reasonable to think that the territory of Plescop belonged directly from Gallo-Roman times to the bishop of Vannes.

The Church Saint-Pierre-aux-Liens parish church has the oldest parts in the apse and south wall of the nave dating back to the 16C. The rest of the church seems to date from the 18C, with the exception of the sacristy, built in the 19C. I have plenty of history and description on the previous post so will be brief here with the opportunity to show you and me the inside of it.

The Church Saint-Pierre-ès-Liens is basically 15-16C that has been altered many times and has no architectural character. There is a small stone font dated 1629. The three altarpieces, in stone and wood, date from the end of the 17C. The altarpiece of the high altar is decorated with a painting representing the Coronation of the Virgin: on either side of the altarpiece are the statues of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, and the whole is surmounted by a Virgin at the Child. The northern altarpiece is surmounted by a Virgin. The southern altarpiece is surmounted by a woman showing the sky to her son. The Virgin of Mercy, in polychrome stone and leaning against the wall of the southern chapel, dates from the 16C. The painting entitled “Vision of Saint Francis of Assisi”, work of Vincent Lhermitais, dates from 1768. Another canvas, located in the north transept, represents the “Descent from the Cross and the Assumption of the Virgin”. In the cemetery there was once a 17C ossuary near which we saw a curious statuette of a 15C monk. The parish church, dedicated to Saint Pierre-ès-liens , has the shape of a Latin cross. The windows are ogival. The side altars are dedicated to the Rosary, Saint Francis of Assisi and Sainte Anne.

The Church Saint Mériadec !!

I have written before on this church but was not able to get inside even if passed by it almost every day,,,, Now ,finally found my way in , and would like to tell you more about it, My previous post told you enough of the history and description so therefore, will tell you a bit more with new and inside pictures of the Church of Saint Mériadec!

Meriadec ch st meriadec front entr jun22

The town of Plumergat, which includes the village of Mériadec has an almost triangular configuration, and is bounded by Brandivy , Pluvigner,  Brech, Pluneret, Plescop and Grand-Champ ! Administratevely, the village of Mériadec is held between Plumergat and Pluneret ! So, the town of two city halls !! And only 14 km from my house!

The chapel dedicated to Saint-Mériadec, bishop of Vannes in 659, located at the current location of the parking park, was built around 1383. Falling into ruin, it was demolished in 1938.

The Church of Saint Mériadec dates from 1913. Inside, there is an altarpiece-tabernacle and a processional cross from the 17C. The Church Saint-Mériadec has today,still, the western facade still waiting for its bell tower, whose financing had been refused by the general council in 1923. The altarpiece-tabernacle (17C), in gilded wood, would come from the old Sainte-Anne-d’Auray Chapel. The current church replaces a primitive chapel. The primitive chapel was a rectangular building, rather archaic, completed in 1383, where one saw some Romanesque windows in semicircular arch and others in pointed arch. A small square pinnacle covered with slates stood at the entrance to the choir. To the south was a small square porch, very simple, with a stone bench on either side. The chapel was covered with a rather crude framework and had been enriched with beautiful 17C wooden altarpieces from the Carmelite convent of Sainte-Anne.

Mériadec was born in Armorica (western France) in 628, he was from the family of Conan Mériadec, the first king of this region. He did not change anything in the austerity of his life; but, filled more and more with charity for all the wretched, he showed that he had accepted the crook only in order to be the nourisher, the doctor, the consoler, the father of his flock. Zealous for the relief of bodily ills, he was even more so for saving souls. He made himself as essential a duty of edification as of holiness. Equipped with the holy viaticum, he died on June 6, 666, He was Bishop of Vannes (7C), He evangelized Brittany, probably an itinerant missionary bishop, as he was so many at that time, Saint Mériadec was a hermit , there is a village Mériadec, which before the French revolution was Saint Mériadec, this first name means ‘the pure forehead’ we find his statue in the Chapel of Querrien.

And remember , happy travels, good health, and many cheers to all !!!
