“Another impressive church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

I found it more impressive and somehow more satisfying than the cathedral in Bayeux, but that is a matter of individual taste.

“Took my breath away”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

This building has the most amazing breath taking atmosphere and words cannot do it justice, just go there. Do not miss if in Dinan, it was Dinan's highlight for me. There are also some lovely cafes in the square to visit afterwards.

“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

There is a quiet beauty about the building which grows on one. Some of the stained glass is fantastic.

“Wonderful ancient Basilica”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

A must during any visit to Dinan. The church provides a printed guided tour in English which tells much about the history and building. There is a mixture of architectural styles from C11th to C15th and the scale and idiosyncrasies of the church give it an accessibility and sense of holiness often lost in bigger churches.

A highlight of my short break.

“Interesting Church, Don't Miss the Garden”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2011

The church is beautiful with an interesting story from the Crusades. We found the square in front very pleasant, but spent more time in the garden behind with the spectacular views of the river and surrounding countryside.
