As far as cathedrals go very pretty. Nice link with the former city walls. Nice examples of stained glass windows. Very clean with a modern feel indoors.

Spent an hour reading about the cathedrals history and restoration whilst wandering round admiring the stained glass windows and statues. Wouldn’t say it was awesome, though peaceful and reflective time

Another must see. Cathedral of stunning proportions in a commanding position. Houses the tomb of Francois II de Bretagne and Marguerite de Foix. Definitely worth the pilgrimage.

This is a very tall cathedral and very well lit. It was a lovely place to visit and spend time. An important part of Breton history.

The exterior is imposing and the interior quite majestic with a very high vaulted roof. It is very light and airy. A notable feature is the tomb of the parents of Duchesse Anne, the last Duchess of Brittany.
