Whilst exploring Quimper's centre we discovered a charity concert was being held that evening so we decided to go. Concert Unisson featured traditional music, organ and military band that also combined recitals of the 3 and some individuals performing in different parts of the cathedral. The ambience of the cathedral was amazing with the lighting and acoustical features making a... More

This cathedral does not rate among the best in France. They present the history in many languages. If you are in Quimper it is a must to visit

Europe is full of chapels, churches and cathedrals, but the Cathedrale St-Corentin is absolutely stunning. Incredibly simple and light-filled inside; outside it dominates the skyline of the city. A definite must see if you are in Quimper.

The cathedral has the quirky turn to the left in side due to the Marsh lands when it was built which made it interesting. It didn't feel austere and they have an interesting board sequence charting history of the church and France All in one.

Beautiful cathedral, worth a second visit by U.S., previously the church had been undergoing serious changes inside so we couldn't see it at its best but we tried again this time and we were suitably impressed....

This cathedral is jaw-dropping both inside and outside. It just has a lovely and serene feel to the inside, especially. This one hit us just right. It was difficult to leave. There is an amazing informative history of the cathedral and what was going on in the world during each year since its inception, showing on four different stands, Sadly... More

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
