Notre Dame du Mont Carmel

La chapelle Notre-Dame du Mont Carmel est située sur le toit des Côtes d'Armor, le Mont Bel-Air, à 339 mètres d'altitude.

Ce lieu était jadis consacré au culte de Bélénos, dieu celtique du Soleil, ainsi qu'en attestent les huit allées partant de la clairière circulaire centrale où se trouve la chapelle.

Le 18 Octobre 1852, une statue ancienne de la Sainte Vierge, provenant de la cathédrale de Saint-Brieuc, fut installée dans l'observatoire des géomètres et la chapelle fut élevée aussitôt.
Elle est en forme de croix grecque comportant une lanterne octogonale entourée de quatre branches. L'inauguration du monument de Notre-Dame de la Paix, érigé à l'intérieur, eut lieu le 21 Juillet 1895. Le Pardon annuel a lieu le 16 juillet.

Le site a fait l'objet d'une réhabilitation complète de 2002 à 2004.

More About France

France is affectionately referred to as "the Hexagon" for its overall shape.French history goes back to the Gauls, a Celtic tribe which inhabited the area circa 300BC until being conquered by Julius Caesar.The Franks were the first tribe to adopt Catholic Christianity after the Roman Empire collapsed. France became an independent location in the Treaty of Verdun in (843 AD), which divided up Charlemagne's Carolingian Empire into several portions.The French monarchy reached its zenith during the reign of Louis XIV, the Sun King, who stood for seventy-two years as the Monarch of all Monarchs. His palace of Versailles and its Hall of Mirrors are a splendid treasure-trove of Baroque art.The French Revolution ended the rule of the monarchy with the motto "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity!" On July 14th, 1789 angry mobs stormed La Bastille prison and began the Revolution in which Louis XVI, his wife Marie-Antoinette and thousands of others met the guillotine.One decade after the revolution, Napolean Bonaparte seized control of the Republic and named himself Emperor. His armies conquered most of Europe and his Napoleonic Code became a lasting legal foundation for concepts of personal status and property.During the period of colonization France controlled the largest empire in the world, second only to Britain.France is one of the founding members of the European Union and the United Nations, as well as one of the nuclear armed nations of the world.Text by Steve Smith.
