Cathedrale St-Maurice, Angers

(4.2/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Cathedrale St-Maurice began as a small church but grew into a full-fledged cathedral with the passage of time. It is exceptional for its nave at 48 m (157.5 ft) long and 22 m (72.2 ft) wide, with a gothic gate and a tower that reaches 60 m (197 ft) into the sky. Walking into the cathedral gives you a sense of the eternity the architecture was meant to represent.

  • Even if domestic work mask the canopy (around the central altar), a visit to the Cathedral itself. Especially during this Holy week.

  • A cathedral located in the heart of the city, with of superb stained-glass windows, stales of era, and an atmosphere that allows a lovely meditation.

  • Beautifully located on the heights of Angers, the view is sublime. Partly restored but still under construction, for certainly many months, we have not had the pleasure of discover portal and throughout the Interior of the Cathedral. However the importance of this monument and beauty make it a must in the city. Feel free to borrow the ascent of Saint Maurice, you will not be disappointed, whether one-way or the other. The descent to the jet of water is also a pleasure for the eyes!
