I can see why this is a top sight in Quimper. It is huge with very interesting side altars, a magnificent center and it’s tall and lovely, obviously built over many centuries. It is awe inspiring.

In the beautiful town of Quimper is the centre piece of the cathedrale of St Corentin. Well worth taken a coffee in the nearby restaurant to view the catherdrale.

The cathedral, which is situated in the pedestrian zone of the city, has an odd shape as it was built with a slight curve to the left, to avoid disturbing an older chapel which contained the tomb of Alain Canhiart, a descendant of the early...More
