Life and travel in France, 3 years & counting

Where should I go next?…

Les Rocher Sculptés, Saint Malo

Situated at 5km from Saint-Malo, there are all these figures – animals and faces, carved into the rocks.

 

The story behind was that a deaf and dumb priest, Abbot Fouré (1839-1910), used 15 years to make these sculptures as his new means of expression and as a refuge to start a long dialogue with the granite with only hammer and chisel.

 

The site is very small and it takes about 15 minutes to visit so it probably doesn’t worth the entry fee. However I would still have visited it as it is an unusual site and it is beyond words to see these figures facing the sea and seeing the wave lashing at the cliffs.

 

Have a look when you are around the area.
Bonne visite 🙂
