Take a look to my corner of the world and you too will know why I am so enthusiastic about my beautiful Morbihan and lovely Bretagne. Let me tell you about a new find on the road D102, the Chapelle de Vrai-Secours of Plouay !! Hope you enjoy it as I.

As doing my road warrior rides into inland Morbihan I have passed by several towns, but the unique thing is passing by these towns and finding new monuments to see and enjoy. This was the case on my latest rides last week coming from Plouay to Lanvaudan on road D102 ,and passing the the True Mercy Chapel !

The village of Ty-Henry is now part of Plouay. It has its own cemetery, its own presbytery and two chapels: Saint-Laurent and Vrai-Secours, the one I passed by it.  It had been destroyed during the French revolution in retaliation because a priest of the time said Mass there despite the ban . It also evokes Saint-Cornély, patron saint of animals and plowing tools. The building has a rectangular plan and a single nave with the addition of a sacristy. The rectangular chapel was blessed on September 8, 1625. It was rebuilt in 1729. It was again rebuilt towards the end of the 18C. The Virgin and Child outside front is made of granite, the Virgin is holding a Child in her arms. Nice.
