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.

Finally seen the cathedral without scaffolding a renovations have been completed save for the gargoyles (!) An interesting cathedral both inside and out located on a big square in the centre of Quimper and perhaps best viewed from the narrow sidestreets for some good photos.

This is a beautiful twin spired cathedral in the heart of the picturesque city of Quimper in Brittany France. Stained glass windows are truly superb. Tableau near to the ntrance of the building is a must-see!

An absolutely stunning building, on a par with Chartres externally, with some amazing stained glass windows and other treasures, especially the bathing of Christ's body tableau.

Beautiful stunning looking church from the outside. Got some lovely photos as the sun was setting on our trip into Quimper for an evening meal.
