 The Calvary of Saint-Thégonnec is one of the seven Calvaries known as “Monumentals” in Brittany.
FR-1587358, sent by Sophie.
These calvaries, commonly called monumental calvaries, are works found only in Brittany. Built between 1450 and 1610, they testify to the prosperity of a territory combined with the religious fervor of the population. They usually consist of a massive stone on which scenes from the Childhood and the Passion of Christ are represented. The Calvary of Saint-Thégonnec dates from 1610.
