  • This monument has been classified in 1910. Ploaré is the seat of an ancient parish which included the Juch and Gourlizon. The construction of the present building began around 1548 and an inscription which was readable a long time ago at the base of the tower.
    This tower was inspired from the ones of Saint-Corentin Cathedral in Quimper, started in 1424.
    At the end of the 16th century, because of the wars of the League, the works seem almost stopped at the base of the pyramid. The construction of the spire then restarts during the 17th century which gives it its aspect.
