The Chapelle Notre Dame of Pléneuf Val André!!

There you go folks, on my road warrior ways again of my lovely Bretagne! I was going into new towns, new finds, and all beautiful! This town sure merits a return as soon as possible; lively ambiance, great beach, and nice monuments to see; what my belle France is all about! I just happened by chance near the plage val André (see post) to find this Chapel Notre Dame ,therefore , here is my take on it. Hope you enjoy the post as I.

Again for reference,the town of Pléneuf-Val-André is located in the Côtes-d’Armor department 22 in my lovely Bretagne region. It is known as a family seaside resort, located on the east coast of the bay of Saint-Brieuc, known as the “Côte de Penthièvre”. 25 km east of Saint-Brieuc and 13 km north of Lamballe. This is our first time here and it was magical, we will be back !!

There is not much written on the Chapelle Notre Dame du Val André but it is worth the detour in city center of Pléneuf Val André!

The Chapelle Notre Dame du Val-André is in the shape of a Latin cross, it includes a nave of four bays, one of which has a gallery, a transept on the north wing of which opens a gallery, and a choir on which opens the choir of nuns. It was built with the blessing of the first stone which took place on November 21, 1896, that of the chapel all finished on April 11, 1899. It houses a modern statue of Saint Yves, It was the former chapel of the Sisters of the Community of Jesus and Mary (now extinct), The statue by entrance of Saint Symphorien was done in August 2020.
