Outstanding Garden at the Prioress of Locmaria

Situated along the Odet, close to the priory, the garden has been equipped since 1997 with aromatic and medieval plants in the spirit of the gardens of monasteries of the Anne de Bretagne period (1477-1514). Religious symbolism is present. At its centre, a kiosk houses a fountain whose water, symbol of life and purification, flows like the rivers that once irrigated paradise. The oak pergola recalls the celestial vault, the aisles form crosses…

Open from 9.00am to 18.00pm - free entrance

ABBATIAL CHRURCH OUR LADY OF LOCMARIA (XIe)

 

Beautiful example of the beginnings of Breton Romanesque architecture: the volumes are perfectly visible and regular, the exterior is very sober. It was modified in the 12th and 6th centuries by the addition of a Gothic portal arched with warheads. The plan is very regular and has a nave of six bays, with a slight transept and a staggered bedside. The nave, dating from the eleventh century. is the oldest part of the church. The church is flanked by a 16th-century cloister along the south side. Its plan is in the form of L. It was built of limestone and has a dozen arcades in semicircular. 2019 she celebrates her 1000 years! This one needs urgent restoration. To make ends meet, the City, in conjunction with the Heritage Foundation, is calling for donations :
