A very interesting attraction well worth visiting when in Le Mans. The architecture was stunning with superb stained glass windows. When I went there was a person playing the church organ adding to the atmosphere.

Located in Le Mans city centre. A big church well illuminated by natural light filtered through the stained glass & the beautiful french chandeliers. Cathedral has an excellent choir on Sunday. We enjoyed our visit... must be one of the best cathedrals in france

Fantastic cathedral, with very many details. If you have time book a guided tour. The outside and the inside both have very interesting details.
