Interesting Architecture

Beautiful Cathedral from the outside, that just begs to be viewed from the inside. Well worth a few hours.

This cathedral, modelled on others in the Ile de France has a very interesting feature in that the main structure bends to the left of centre. The windows are spectacular and provide ample light to the interior.

The cathedral is lovely and well worth popping in to have a look around. The stained glass is beautiful. On a sunny day sit outside at one of the cafes and admire the architecture with a lovely coffee and watch the world go by.

Beautiful cathedral but unfortunately there is so much renovation work going on in the church that you can't see it at its best.

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!!
