Photographer's Note

Dominating the bay of Paimpol, the chapel of Saint-Barbe is a building of the xviie century reshaped in the xxe century ( 1908 ).It is built on the highest eminence of the parish of Kérity, in the said place " Mac' helaire ". It is in this chapel, the only one of the parish, that every year, the fishermen of Iceland and Newfoundland came on pilgrimage to ask to Saint Barbe to protect them from the lightning and from all the dangers. Besides the small forgiveness celebrated on December 4th, the Day of Atonement is celebrated the day of the Ascension Day. This day, numerous pilgrims come to visit the chapel. They brought formerly their offering of wheat or money(silver). Next to the chapel is a small oratory buried and surmounted by an ordeal(Calvary). It is in this small building that we stored formerly the offered wheat
