Hôtel Saint Yves


Sainte Yves Hotel (17th century), was erected “rue (“street”) Saint Yves” (used to be called the Chicken Alley), and was home to a famous religious cabinetmaking workshop until the end of the 19th century. Exteriors visible only, from the street.

The sculptor, Denis Derrien, employed around 15 workers and realised many statues, altars, altarpieces and various furniture for churches in the region. With this workshop and Pondaven workshop in the main street, Saint-Pol-de-Léon became the Capital of the Léonard Sculpture.
There used to be a small street next to the building’s east gable, linking the “rue Saint Yves” to the “rue Rozière”. And here is a curious fact : the face sculpted on the building’s pediment is the same ornament than the one on the house located at No 6 “rue Rozière” !
