Bazouges-la-Pérouse Details

Just 2,000 people live in the small village of Bazouges-la-Perouse in the department of Ille et Vilaine. These residents, the Bazougeais, live in the Bretagne region in the northwest of France. The town has long been associated with the law, as it was a center of justice and the home of a regional prison. However, the town also was an important religious center, and more than forty ancient crosses can be found across the area.

The longest nave is known as the Chapel of Saint-Gilles, and also of note are the sacristy and a massive door. Fans of stained glass will enjoy the Basse Eglise, which was built in 1313, with additions in the 16th century as well.
