When we first entered, we felt we were in the Cathedral it was so nice. Wonderful art throughout. Like several of the other churches we visited, the stained glass is almost all new in that these windows were damaged during WWII.

Rennes is filled with churches, but this one merits a stop for your time in the city. It was open, but completely empty when we visited. The solitude and the magnificence of the building is a delight and the interior appointments are wonderfully maintained.

So many churches, each distinctive. Beautiful organ and gilded wood lectern. Great adoration to Our Lady.

Other than the workers mopping the nave floor, the only sounds are the worshippers praying with the rosary. The interior is beautifully kept.

Check opening times, not open all day. Chior was practising, wonderful voices. The basilique is a site to see.

Devotees and church goers pray and ask for blessings and guidance with this simple but stunning colors and lavish work inside. Rennes another gem.
