Cathedrale Saint Vincent, Chalon-sur-Saone

4.4
#1 of 12 in Things to do in Chalon-sur-Saone
On the central square in Saint-Malo sits one of the city's landmarks, Cathedrale Saint Vincent--a 12th-century Gothic cathedral. Having long served as the seat of the bishop, the historical structure now has national monument status. Although relatively modest, the church features twin towers, high-arched ceilings, a single bell tower, and a stunning multicolored, circular stained-glass window that shines on the interior. Inside, look for the large pipe organ. If time allows, explore the quaint cafes, restaurants, and shops on the square, and stroll the picturesque streets nearby, lined with old houses.

  • A year later we revisit this Cathedral to review with a different eye than we have already seen above a little too fast. With a more careful visit the beauty of some of the chapels and the architectural motifs placed on the walls which, though remains, are softened with mullioned Windows with Gothic capitals. The chapels are much more artistic, some richly decorated with tapestries and paintings as well as some statues. In particular this time we noticed the chapel dedicated to San Carlo Borromeo for which the inhabitants of Chalon had a particular devotion linked to his miracles and his reputation as a thaumaturge during plague epidemics.
