There are many sites of interest close to Le Manoir
Chapelle Saint Tugen – St Tugen
Dominated by a monumental tower standing 28m high, the current building (29m long and 25m wide), was built between 1535 and 1582 on the site of a former trevi chapel. In the midst of the influx of pilgrims, it was enlarged several times between 1610 and 1750.
Saint Raymond Church – rue Emile Zola, 29770, Audierne.
Built in 1631, completely from granite (the archetypal Breton stone), the interior is beautifully decorated and there are three stone boats carved into its walls. Before entering the building, admire the high Baroque style steeple.
Overhanging the River Goyen, Pont-Croix is a medieval town with pretty narrow paved streets lined with old houses, as well as a collegiate church built in the 13th century, the Notre-Dame-de-Roscudon collegiate church, the highlight of Point Croix. The church combines elements of roman and gothic architecture and dates from the 13th century. Its tall spire dominates the skyline of the town and the facade features impressive ‘lacework’ stone carvings, while the inside has a decorative altarpiece and other figures and a painted ceiling.
Generally regarded as the cultural heart of Brittany, the town is known for its cathedral, atmospheric old quarter and museums. Quimper gets its name from the Breton kemper, which refers to the junction of two rivers: the Steir and the Odet. Quimper’s most impressive building is its cathedral, which is said to be the best example of Gothic religious architecture in Brittany. West of the cathedral is the atmospheric old town, where you’ll find many half-timbered houses dating from the 14th century. The streets are named after old job titles and Place au Beurre, where butter was sold, is one of Quimper’s prettiest locations and good place to stop for a crêpe.
