This is not one of France's ancient cathedrals. It was built during the 19th century. It has a somewhat austere exterior. The inside however is highly decorated and brightly painted. Worth a look if you're in the area.

This vast cathedral with it's ancient history is very impressive. Allow at least an hour or two to take in the outstanding paintings and statues and absorb the wonderful atmosphere.

The outside of this Cathedral is grey, hard and austere. It is rooted to the square and hardly looks welcoming but it is really worth the visit. Walk in and and allow your eyes to drift to the ceiling and see amazing art works which...More

Beautiful cathedral with gilded wood lectern. Interesting lighting of chandeliers. Half the church has been cleaned and looks great. Easy to find. Closes for three hours at lunch.

Someone cleaned off the graffiti, so the exterior of the church looks fine. Apparently, a cathedral has stood on this site since the sixth century. The gothic cathedral was constructed in the 12th century and the western facade and towers date from then. However, after...More

Not spectacular in any way, and, surprisingly, hard to find! Unusually dar even for a Cathedral. There has been no upkeep in recent years.

Nice Cathedral.. There is no crowd so very nice for shooting but difficult as there is no big space around. I did enjoy it a little :)

Th building is quite plain outside, but lovely within - the city idiots graffiti is sprayed on outside walls. The interior is lovely and well worth an hour or more of your time.

Rennes Cathedral is very ornate with much gold in its decoration. On either side of the nave are a row of red pillars. As I prefer Gothic or Romanesque cathedrals, this is not a favourite!
