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.

Lovely stained glass windows. A welcome calm in the centre of St Malo. Worth a visit. Wander round and cool down on hot days. Pause for thought. Very tranquil.
