In 1601, a grand procession all the way from Saint-Brieuc came to implore the saint Crézouard healer. The chapel of the Ville-ès-Zions is characteristic of many religious buildings built in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries in the Pays de Moncontour. Whether public or private, these chapels have very little ornament. Nevertheless, this chapel features a whistling cob on its roof ; the effect of blowing through the aperture of the small spire. This chapel, located in the Ville-es-Zion is also known under the name of Chapel of the Holy Spirit. The chapel of St. Blaise is a shrine erected in the nineteenth century. Another chapel existed in the real village of Saint-Blaise on the road to Bréhand. It was dedicated to Saint-Samson and now only an oak, centuries old, embodies the ancient place of worship. The chapel of Notre-Dame-de-la-Croix was rebuilt in the nineteenth century with a square base form. In addition to the ancient statues that it contains, the main interest of this building is its carved niche with a statue of the Virgin above the entrance with an inscription dedicated to her. This chapel contains the following statues : Our Lady of the Cross, Our Lady of Deliverance, St Peter and St Roch. The Pardon takes place the first Sunday of September.
