The Cathédrale was just a block away from where we were staying, so we stopped in on the way to the Vieux Port. This is a church, concentrated in 1784, is a lovely piece of architecture with gorgeous stained glass and side chapels. It is bright and a lovely place of peace and serenity.

The exterior is quite dull, but the interior has some fabulous points. The stained glass windows are exceptional and there are some fine descriptive paintings.There are also some great carvings and the organ is really spectacular and enormous.

This cathedral had some stunning history and artwork inside - even if it is a bit unassuming and understates from the outside. The ceilings and walls are steeped with paintwork and it really is impressive. Quiet and well kept, this is definitely worth a visit if passing.

This Cathedral has a lot to offer. Great windows with brilliant colors with incredible depth. The art work is significant and many of the small chapels have been brilliantly restored.

This cathedral told a story with its art, and was very sacred. The stained glass and architecture was stunning. I loved it.

It's the Wandering Yank here. Mrs. Yank and I recently spent a wonderful month in France, and 3 days in La Rochelle. This is a rather typical cathedral, and I never grew tired of visiting churches and cathedrals. It's brighter than some, and in beautiful condition. 2 thumbs up!
