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

After spending four days in Saint-Malo, I've visited the cathedral just before my departure. That was a mistake! The cathedral is so beautiful that I wish I could have more time there and, probably, could have visited several times. It's quite big and you feel awed when you go inside. The huge windows giving soft warm light, beautiful decorations and... More

Lively church that had to be largely rebuilt after the war. They have done a wonderful job as they have with the old town. You can see the changes in age of the church but it is lovely. The stain glass is very good but obviously and sadly not the original as the Germans destroyed it but the Americans added... More

This cathedral dominates the city. Inside there are many beautiful stained glass windows. The organ is up above Ne the cathedral hosts recitals.

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.

In contrast to the bustling streets of Saint Malo's IntraMuros the cathedral is majestic and calm inside. I would recommend taking the time to visit and admire the extraordinary detail and beautifully decorated cathedral.

Admission is free. At first it looks somewhat gloomy, but this serves to highlight the restored stain glass windows or should I say the replacements installed after war damage. These are in modern art style and work surprisingly well in an old building. The altar is special and the old pulpit with winding staircase evokes sounds of stirring French sermons.... More
