This cathedral is central to the town of Quimper and certainly worth visiting. It is unusual in the alignment of the nave. Apart from its very impressive size, I thought the stained glass windows were particularly impressive.

Situated in the old town, the Cathedrale St-Corentin is well worth a visit. The exterior is very different to the interior. I Unlike some of our cathedrals where you have to go in, this one is free. A lovely place to rest and comtemplate

Very large beautiful cathedral. It has an odd feature - the cathedral is not straight from front to back. The end where the altar is bends to the left. There are theories about why it has the bend but no solid facts.

This cathedral is truly the center of attraction in Quimper. All the cosy streets are nearby and it's easy to find with its two towers pointing skywards. The interior is also worth a look of course. They have some beautifully decorated windows and the architecture itself is awesome. Take a detour there if you can :)

While staying in Bénodet we decided to go over to Quimper for the day. The cathedral was something I wanted to see whilst holidaying in Brittany. Quimper is a lovely town but the cathedral itself is something else, very beautiful and gothic like. There was so much to see in side, a camera is a must. My children also enjoyed... More

Interesting, but not memorable. The building is impressive and its setting in the Old Town is good to see.

Remarkable windows, the scenes spanning all of the casements. My fave was of the donor offering the cathedral building. Does anybody remember the name of the saint in the rear corner who answers prayers for lost items?

There was the feel of a "working" church, which is nice compared to some cathedrals you can find. The stained glass are mainly stories of Jesus' life along with some saints' lives. There is a chapel behind the main alter that is nice for some prayerful reflection.

A must see when visiting Quimper, not least because it was so cool on a blisteringly hot day. Interesting place to explore or just sit peacefully.
