With over 7 centuries of construction, this grand church is now undergoing a major restoration. As with all these old churches, there is a lot of history, saints, martyrs, and stained class windows, all with a story. The main altar, the choir, and pipe organ...More

There isn't so many big cathedral in Brittany. This one is nice to visit and has all the offering from a bigger cathedral. The best is its location which is right by many nice little restaurants and boutique. Go visit it.

We actually tried to go to Mass here on a Sunday but missed the time of entry by a half hour. The cathedral is beautiful from the outside, but it is surrounded by many contemporary buildings, fit closely in. Still, it is well maintained. I...More

Aside from being a beautiful cathedral in the heart of the Old Town, the earthly remains and story of St. Vincent are here. It was amazing to learn more about his life and miracles. Definitely recommend a visit.

We made just a brief informal stop admiring the lovely stained glass windows. There appears to be a substantial organ-and would like to return to hear it in action.

The best thing of this small cathedral was its free entry. It was not over ornate or covered in golden paint and marble, it's interior was simple and quite pleasant. But it has not got any strong characters either. Just another town cathedral.

The cathedral is gothic-style, located at the centre of the old city of Vannes. It's a nice cathedral to visit, but it's not that different from the other churches in the region of Brittany

Lovely cathedral with stunning stained glass and many beautiful small chapels. A real place of worship that isn't touristy despite the tourists. A lot of information in English which is a great help. Well worth a trip to see.
