Saint Michael's church of Saint-Brieuc is an forgotten patrimony . It is ofen criticize and discredit because unknow of everybody.

However, Saint Michael's church is an interessant patrimony to discover and know thought :
- his history,
- his neo-classical architecture,
- his vitraux by la Maison CHAMPIGNEULLE de Paris, great glassmarker,
- his frescoes and decorations by Raphaël DONGUY, talented interior decorator,
- et some anectodes et events.

Louis GUILLOUX spoke about Saint Michael's church in one of his works since 1935 (Le Pain Noir, adapted in theatre by the name of Cripure).

In 2016, Saint Michael's Parish will celebrate its 480's anniversary !!

In fact, the first registers of births, marriages and deaths date from 1536 for the baptisms and 1539 for the marriages and the deaths.
Saint Michael is the oldest parish in Saint - Brieuc, and it was the only one before the French Revolution in Saint-Brieuc until 1801 (Concordat of 1801).

Saint Michael's Church was consacred on 24/07/1875. It celebrated his 140th anniversary in 2015.

I decided to create this internet site to make this patrimony more well known.
