We had visited the town for the day and came across this lovely church. It was moving to see the tributes to those lost in the past.

As you enter the town, this is the first building you see. Tributes to those lost in the wars and at sea very moving. Nice to see explanations of stained glass windows.

Nice church in a seaside town with a history of fishing and seafaring. The memorial to those lost at sea, the boat and ship models were the highlights of this church. For anyone with an interest in ships and seafaring this is worth a visit.

Nice statue out the front. Pretty from the exterior - not grand. Uninspiring interior - at least in my humble opinion. 1786.

Located in central Cancale with obvious emphasis on maritime subjects / occupations, which is appropriate in a seaside village. Blessings and stories recounted in the beautiful stained glass windows. It's worth a slight detour to visit. Enjoy ...

At 10.15 began to think we had got the time wrong as nobody else in the church! Sat firm and kept our resolve and the reward was an excellent Mass.
