This cathedral is really lovely. The highlight for me was the glorious stained glass windows throughout the building. Around the cathedral are lots of lovely old Breton buildings, many of which are Creperies.

A very large; beautiful cathedral in the central square of "old" Quimper. Very beautiful & numerous stained glass windows.

This cathedral has a lot going on. It does have beggars at the door, but once you're inside its really interesting! I would recommend downloading the Wikipedia page as it gives a fantastic tour of the cathedral and we only read it when we got back to our gite. Loads to see, art, relics and amazing stained glass windows. All... More

The cathedral is huge and is striking because its nave bends in the middle. Lovely windows and statues. Don't miss the 16th century statue of Saint Yves between the rich and the poor.

We entered the foyer of the Cathedral - fully intent on entering the main body. We were accosted by a male beggar who was vociferous in his approach and physically threatening in his movement. We turned tail and went back to the outside to be accosted by a female beggar at the entrance.

Took the family on a lovely day out to Kemper and stumbled across the beautiful cathedral, I'm not really a lover of architecture but this was fantastic. Well worth a visit! Apologies to anyone who was in there at the time when my pram decided to have a squeaky wheel!

A very beautiful building that has, unfortunately been renovated to the point of removing it's charm. And at midday a gentleman threw everyone out (of the Cathedral!) so they could close for lunch! I can think of other places to visit first!

We were lucky enough to go to a wedding. Set in this historic town surrounded by cobbled streets, old shops, restaurants and by the river. Grand organ, two spires, classical ancient cathedral with Brittany intricate stone additions in keeping with many religious buildings in the area. Stone high ceilings rather than wood, relatively little over decoration. Very peaceful. No charge.

This is a magnificent cathedral. The stained glass windows are very colorful and impressive. We arrived during a baptism ceremony that was very touching to see. Look for the statue of King Gradlon between the two spires.

In the centre of the city this is a must see. The nave is unusual, as it isn't straight. The stain glass windows are beautiful
