Free entry with many signs in English. This is the centre piece of the town. We saw many schools bringing children and there were tours for them.

Beautiful building and interior but unfortunately undergoing extensive renovation work until 2020 so covered in scaffolding and not much opportunity for good photos!

An unbelievable piece of architecture and a spectacular scene inside. Took our breath away and worth 10 minutes just to awe at what people could achieve.

There are some serious renovations works taking place & it was pretty noisy inside, Looks as though they have major problems with damp etc. Interesting to look round though & some nice windows.

There was scaffolding around the building and inside you can sense the strength of the building from the cool stone smell. I am not a fan of churches but this building was not too grand and calming so just pop in.

Since Saint-Pol-de-Leon is a comparatively small town we did not expect a gothic cathedral that big and beautiful. Well worth visitng.

The cathedral is being renovated at the moment and will be finished in 2020, this means that you cannot make the climb to the top to enjoy the view of the surrounding area.

A magnificent cathedral easily accessible in the middle of this small town. Lovely stained glass and amazing sculptures of the people entombed.
