P1000839 Landivisiau

The town of Landivisiau wasn’t very interesting nor was it a part of my tour except as a place for me to stop and find a restroom. Of note however was the parish church, l'église Saint-Thuriau which was built in the 1860s and replaces a church that was on the same site dating from 1554. The church still retains its south porch and tower from the 16th century.
