Church of Our Lady of Rosporden


The Church of Our Lady of the Assumption located in the heart of Rosporden is part  of the oldest monuments in Brittany. At the edge of the pond near the ford on the Aven, it was at the end of the 13th or the beginning of the 14th century that a church was built. Its oldest parts, such as the octagonal piers of the nave, are original.

Ruined during the wars of succession in Brittany, the initial place of worship was restored in the 15th century, then the monument was lengthened by four meters in the 19th century. The church houses works of art protected as Historical Monuments, in particular the statue of Our Lady of Rosporden (a Black Virgin) which dates from the 15th century. She has long been revered by the locals.

Church of Our Lady of the Assumption


The church itself and its works of art, including a 15th century Entombment , are seriously threatened by the wear and tear of time, in particular by humidity.

Concerned about the general state of the church, the municipality ordered a diagnosis from which it appears that the degradation of the building is accelerating to the point of threatening the cultural riches that it should house.

It is becoming urgent to start repair work, in particular the waterproofing of the building. This unprecedented restoration is impossible without the use of private donations and, if possible, corporate sponsorship.
