We visited this cathedral as part of a week long visit to Brittany. As with most chapels, churches & cathedrals in this region the gothic style is very much in evidence. British visitors will enjoy the fact that, unlike UK cathedrals, you do not have to pay any entrance fee to view the inside of this beautiful place of worship.... More

Spectacular but do pay 1 euro for the leaflet. Highly recommended. Windows of great significance and the development over time since 13th century.

What an astonishingly beautiful cathedral. From the outside the architecture is stunning - but - go inside to see its really splendour. What's amazing is that it's all there! I mean the little niches still have the little and not so little statues that would have been there during its initial construction. Windows that are quite stunning in their beauty... More

France is filled with great cathedrals, but I am afraid that for me St Corentin is not really one of them. The best of it is the decoration on the outside, and the spires are very beautiful indeed. Inside it has a strange design whereby the end of the nave is set at a slight angle to the rest. This... More

Very beautiful Cathedral well worth a visit. The day we visited there was a local craft fair taking place in the courtyard. You can get a great view from many differing aspects, the windows are wonderful.

Very beautiful cathedral. As interesting detail I saw its unusual layout, unlike other Gothic cathedrals it bends slightly in the middle. Walking next to the cathedral, we heard the sounds of music from the courtyard. Seeking the source of these sounds, we found the entrance to the courtyard of the cathedral and found that it takes event with Breton folk... More

From the first glance of the two towers from the splendid riverside walk in Quimper, the cathedral dominates the town. You can get splendid views from several angles from the outside, and once you go inside the interior does not disappoint. There are splendid windows in a superbly proportioned space. You won't see exotic tapestries or carvings here, but the... More

Beautiful windows. The stained glass windows rival any that I have seen. Worth a visit inside. The area around the cathedrale is very charming, love this little town!

Visited Quimper and as the Cathedral seems to be the Centre of town, we paid a visit. Very beautiful inside as well as outside, large statues and paintings, very serene atmosphere, beautiful stained glass windows, worth a visit if you have half an hour left or on a rainy day, even if you're not a Catholic. Entry is free of... More

The cathedral is the highlight of quimper, which overall I found to be a disappointing town to visit. The cathedral was very impressive from the outside but inside it was not very ornate. Visit if you're in the area but don't go out of your way.
