This is a beautifully preserved cathedral with is clean white stone and impressive vertical columns. The tombs tell the story of Anne who became duchess at the age of 10 and was promptly married off to other nobility. Worth a visit.

A fine building whose key attraction is the tomb of the Duke of Brittany and his wife. It is definitely worth visiting. A well restored church witha useful guide in English for 50 cents.

The cathedral is a very quiet and beautiful building, once inside I was surprised at how large the inside space was, it seemed huge. The architecture was outstanding. This is a lovely place to visit if you are interested in architecture or religion.

Firstly, the gothic cathedral is beautiful and imposing. Construction started during the 1400s and finished during the 1800s. It was bombed during the Second World War so you'll notice that the stained glasses are new. Also pay attention to the two-tone columns and walls, which...More
