The Church Saint Martin of Landevant !

This is another town close to me in fact 10 km from my house. We passed so many times and even shop groceries sometimes in it. Nice little town and warm folks. Upon passing again, I took new pictures and of the inside, finally! Therefore, why not put them in my blog in a new post on Landevant and its Church Saint Martin. Of course, I have older posts on the church and Landevant in my blog. Hope you enjoy the post as I.

The Church of St. Martin built in 1834. It replaces a 15C Church that has preserved a few animal sculptures. Some carved stones from the old church have been preserved, embedded in the south wall and fragments of inscriptions in Gothic characters giving dates 1413 and 1422.

The first church dates back to the 15C, we learn that the first bell tower was completed in 1512. The new church was built in 1834 according to the date shown on the gable of the chevet The new bell tower, built in 1857, and adorned with Doric, Ionic and Corinthian pilasters, is crowned by a stone spire The sacristy is contemporary with the church The south porch destroyed during WWII was rebuilt around 1950

There you go folks, another nice passing and in my blog on nice small Landevant. Again, these are not tourist towns ,but a rest stop would be fine in its city center by the Church Saint Martin. It is historical for sure locally and has nice architecture which I like. Hope you enjoy the post as I.

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