Photographer's Note

The Saint Mathieu chapel is situated a few hundreds meters from the ocean, on the coastal drive from Guidel to Ploemeur. It was built in 1487 and partially rebuilt in 1849. It is one of the 7 chapels you can see on the city of Guidel, but it is the only one listed as historical monument. The 7 chapels of Guidel gave its name to a classical and jazz music festival : the "Festival des 7 chapelles" (7 chapels festival). Concerts used to take place in these 7 chapels and in Guidel church. Today it has been renamed as Polignac Festival and concerts take place in Guidel church, during two weeks every july.
