Yves Nicolazic and Pierre de Kériolet
Two statues in the façade of the Basilica of Sainte-Anne d'Auray:
Yves Nicolazic (Pluneret 1591 - Sainte-Anne d'Auray 1645), Breton paysant, for whom St. Anne appeared in 1624
Pierre Le Gouvello de Kériolet (1602-1660), French nobleman who led a very wicked life until he was miraculously saved from a bullet and attended an exorcism where the devil accused him of his sins. Recognizing God's hand in his life, he became a model of virtue and lived a holy life from that moment.
The basilica was built 1866-72 by the architect édouard Deperthes.
