This cathedral is really impressive and nice to visit. It has a relaxed atmosphere and a lot of history to tell. There were lots of notes to explain all the objects you can see there. I also loved the old tombes on the sides.

A beautiful and impressive looking cathedral situated in the centre of the beautiful city of Quimper. It's by far the most imposing building in Quimper. It's free to enter. There was a stall inside selling gifts from Belarus which appeared to be fundraising towards the children of Belarus. Our visit coincided with an actual Mass which started 5 mins after... More

It's rare you go to a Cathedral and it's free but this is. Visited Quimper and as you enter the town you can see the two spires up in the sky, which is very striking. You can take photos inside which is always a bonus too but the best pictures are best left for the front of the Cathedral.

Standing proudly in the middle of the county town of Quimper, the cathedral is both dramatic and yet tranquil inside. An oasis of calm, it contains the obvious religious artefacts you would expect to find - but the nature of the architecture inside is stunning. The best thing of all is that it is free! Photography is allowed inside. I... More

Ok so its free, it is central to the main town shopping centre. Some people i imagine would spend a while in there. It only took me 15 minutes. I have no interest in religion, which is perhaps the reason why.

Thoroughly enjoyed it so much, I did it twice after finding the Detailed Guide in English! Make that the first thing you do. As you enter turn to the right.

It's the Wandering Yank here. Mrs. Yank and I recently spent a month in France, and we spent a couple of days in Brittany. Mrs. Yank always liked Quimperware, so this city was on our itinerary (note: Quimperware is nice, but quite expensive). The cathedral is pretty, as are most, but there's one thing that stood out. If you look... More

This is an essential stop if you're visiting Quimper. The crooked nave is unique and the artwork is beautiful. I particularly enjoyed the painting of the angel touching a man on his tongue in order to confer to him the Bretagne language! My wife and I attended Sunday Mass at St Corentin - very nice and relaxing.
