Chapelle Saint-Nicolas—Monastêre Saint-Nicolas—Saint-Nicolas Museum of Sacred Art—Faubourg du Rachapt

Vitré, Bretagne France

[Roman Catholic]

The chapel was built in the 15th and 16th centuries to serve the adjacent hospital. Augustinian nuns, who cared for the patients, built a monastery next to the chapel in the mid-1600s. The monastery continued throughout the Revolution; the nuns left Vitré in 1975. Since 1985, when the hospital was moved, the chapel became a museum of sacred art, specializing in gold treasure from the 19th and early 20th centuries.
