Sacred Place of the Day
of St. Gildas sits upon the bank of the Canal du Blavet in Brittany, France.
Built like a stone barn into the base of a bare rocky cliff, this was once a
holy place of the Druids. Gildas appears to have travelled widely throughout the
Celtic world of Corwall, Wales, Ireland and Scotland. He arrived in Brittany in
about AD 540 and is said to have preached Christianity to the people from a
rough pulpit, now contained within the chapel.
