Portrait of Paul
Born in Plumelec Paul, ex-teacher, animator and trainer in the primary school, has lived for 37 years in Saint-Abraham.
Becoming a true Abrahamese, he has studied the history of his village in the archives of Vannes. On 150 pages he traces its history, a memory he would like to share with visitors. It’s quite surprising to learn that the existence of Saint-Abraham only appears in the archives from 1453, as if there had been no village before that date.
Every month, a small portion of his diligently done research is published in the local newspaper, with the intense desire for the continuation of a transmission.
Paul points out that one does not come to Saint-Abraham by chance, the town is not on any major road.
The sweetness of life in Saint-Abraham is evident there, he says.
Three superb 15th-century altarpieces can be seen in the church, including The Stoning of St. Stephen, the parish’s patron saint. The keys are to be picked up from residents near the building.
