It is a landmark of St Malo. You may see it far away outside the walled city. Inside the beautiful glass windows tell us more stories about St Malo. In the walled city, there are lots of interesting places to see.

If your passing by do pop in and see the church. Compared to others we have seen it is just ok. I would not make a special trip to see it but if on your tour or walking about just have a look. The stain glass window was beautiful.

The atmosphere inside the Cathedral was peaceful. The Stained glass window was absolutely amazing, such beautiful colours. The alter was also beautiful to behold, really modern and unusual.

The choir is Gothic, the nave Romanesque, a somewhat jarring juxtaposition as seen here, unlike the similar juxtaposition at Mont St. Michel. Nonetheless the soaring choir is pleasing, and the nave serviceable. If you are a praying person, there is a nice chapel reserved for prayer on the right side of the nave. On the left side of the nave,... More

Originally founded in the 12th century, presenting an eclectic range of architectural styles. A most unusal feature is the descending floor plan from the main entrance in various levels to lower ground. Interesting interior structure and stained glass windows round out the eclectic experience. Definitely a place worth visiting.

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
