The Notre-Dame Church was rebuilt on the ruins of the old church between 1880 and 1884, the parish church of Bréhan was inaugurated and consecrated on September 10, 1884. In neo-Gothic style, this large coated stone building is drawn on the plan of a Latin cross.

It was completely demolished at the end of the 19C and replaced by a Gothic-style building consecrated on September 10, 1884. The pulpit and the railings of the baptismal font date from the 19C. A surprise church nicer than look outside, another surprise in deep Morbihan!

An anecdote, in 1484, the first printing press in Brittany was set up in Bréhan-Loudéac, by the will of Jean Rohan-du-Gué-de-l’Isle. Two printers set it up, Robin Foucquet and Jean Crès. Twelve books printed in Bréhan reached us on December 16, 1484, the first Breton incunabula came out: Le Trespassement Nostre-Dame
