Photographer's Note

A few minutes left to post a papagolfade ... So here is Saint-Philibert chapel, in Saint-Philibert, a village on the south coast of Morbihan department, between La Trinité-sur-Mer and Locmariaquer. This roman style chapel dates from 17th and 18th centuries. It stands in a beautiful natural area, on the banks of a small bay, Ster bay. Close to the chapel you can see two fountains of 17th and 18th centuries too, one for humans, the other for animals ! Inside the chapel you can see an altarpiece with a paiting representing Saint Philibert arriving in Ster bay on a stone boat. The ceiling is in wood and is painted with stars. You can also see small boat models hanged to the ceiling : they are called ex-voto, and you can see some in a lot of chapels close to the sea. The photo was token in last january, on a nice and cold winter day. The sun was low on the horizon and gave nice colours to the stone walls of the chapel.
