Nice cathedral in the centre of the town

The cathedral is right in the centre of the town a few mins walk from the Chateau (museum now) and is free. Worth a visit and it is free.

Well worth a look and to read about its history, walked past it twice before we realised we could go in as the door was shut, so don't be afraid to try the not very grand green door

During 1944 the cathedral was hit by ordinance and much of its original structure (including the spire) was reduced to rubble. The cathedral was rebuilt and re-consecrated in 1971. A mosaic on the floor of the nave... More

Well worth a visit for some tranquility after St Malo intra muros. Interesting design with the choir set lower than the nave, wonderful modern altar, throne, lecture etc, and beautiful light through modern stained glass windows.

This is a 12th century church that was destroyed by bombs in August 1944. It took several years to restore. When you enter the door at the back, it is very dark. The light comes only from several picture stained glass windows high on the walls. As you move forwards you walk towards the light that comes through the modern... More
