Photographer's Note

TOUR CHAPEL AR C扝REIZKER, KASTELL-PAOL, BRO LEON

THE TOWER OF KREIZKER CHAPEL, SAINT POL DE LEON, BRITTANY.

This photo is dedicated to Herve (maltese) who like to joke with my ethnic origin. I抦 from the Leon country (north west of Brittany).

The main town of Leon is Brest, which was a French military creation, but the spiritual heart is Kastell-Paol (Saint Pol de Leon), the episcopal see.

One of the symbol of the town, except the cathedral, is the tower of the (quite small) chapell of Kreizker (= downtown). It is 77 meters high, built in XIVth century after the civil war, then destroyed many times by calamities such as lightning, norman or english troops, and rebuilt always higher ! It seems the people of Leon country have the reputation to be very proud, but personally, I don抰 know why.

From the top of the tower, the valorous pilgrim who will be able to climb the 163 steps will discover a wonderful panorama, as the tower is not far from the sea (maybe a picture could follow one day...)
