The walls are actually plain, but this cathedral has beautiful windows. Free to visit hence well worth walking through.

Quemper is a wonderful city filled with life. We came for the Festival de Cornouaille and enjoyed every bit of it. The Cathedrale St-Corentin is truly a beautiful church not to be missed if people are in the city. However there occurred a strange scene inside the church that simply left me baffled. After being inside the church for a... More

Well worth an easy climb. Start at the tourist office and take the sloping path up past the Chateau d'Eau and on to the Promenade. A different view of this magnificent building from peaceful surroundings.

A beautiful monument in the heart of the historical quarters of Quimper. I was in awe of the refine, rich beauty inside.I loved the stain glass windows & the gardens outside of this jewel monument. If you want to know more, then I would recommend the guided tour, a must. I did and learned so much of its hidden mystic... More

Should you find yourself in or close to Quimper, and you have a little time to spare, a visit to this magnificent cathedral is strongly recommended. You can't miss it. It stands right in the centre of the city and the steeples are very visible landmarks. Externally, the architecture is quite superb. Enter, stand inside the front door, take in... More

I suspect not as well known as some other cathedrals but don't miss this one. Beautiful stained glass windows and look at the fine detail on the stone. Unmissable!!

The 15th and 16th century stained glass windows are particularly fine. There are willing guides and loads of information in many languages.

We realised near the end of our walk around the cathedral that we had walked past little pieces of saints! YES real saints bits of bones. We were amazed at the detail of maps and the such on the wall outside and some amazing stain glass windows - we could make direct comparison to Canterbury as we live near by... More

Be sure to check out the cathedral, particularly its oddly curved nave. Currently displaying a Catholic timeline of human history which is very interesting...
