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 such a beautiful place to visit; beauty, splendour, peace and calm. The architecture is awe-inspiring. The stained glass windows are particularly beautiful. Well worth a visit.

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.

An impressive Gothic building. The vaulted ceiling is very detailed as are some of the chapels within the Cathederal.It is probably one of the best Cathederals in France & is worth a visit.

We are a young at heart, retired couple, late fifties/early sixties, travelling down to Portugal on a 'road trip'. Our first night's stop after the overnight ferry to St Malo was Nantes and we couldn't resist this beautiful cathedral. Absolutely poles apart in our faith,...More
