Eglise Saint-Loup

22580 Lanloup
This Gothic granite church is typical of the religious architecture of the 15th and 16th centuries. Despite the need for some restoration work during the 19th century, the church wasn't completely destroyed like a great number of churches along the coast. The south porch, dating from around 1550, is on the site of the former Saint-Gilles chapel, and houses the statues of the twelve apostles in canopied niches with the evangelists in the four corners. You can admire works like the 19th century wooden polychrome Virgin, a 16th century granite statue of Saint-Loup entitled Crucifixion, a painting by Georgius Le Tourneur dated 1634, some 18th and 19th century wooden reliquary boxes known in French as 'boîtes à chef' or 'boîtes à crâne', and in which bone remains were kept.
