Cathedrale St-Corentin, Quimper

4.6
The first thing you’ll notice is that unlike other Gothic cathedrals, Cathedrale St-Corentin bends slightly in the middle to match the contours of its location. This Roman Catholic cathedral is the seat of the Bishops of Quimper-Léon. Go inside to view the beautiful stained-glass windows of the chapel and the 16th century wooden statue of Saint Yves standing between the rich and the poor. A visit to Cathedrale St-Corentin represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Quimper itinerary maker to plot your vacation.

    A cathedral to visit for anyone interested in architecture. Feel free to inquire about the visit of the check (200 steps) to the tourist information Office.

    When the sun sets and lights up the 2 towers, the Kereon street view is magical. Note the equestrian statue of Gradlon King between the 2 towers

    Well restored architecture with magnificent neo-gothic spires and unusual not quite aligned position of the nave. Interesting stained glass, and plenty of local references.

    There was a funeral going on when we arrived here so didn't get to really look inside. Looked amazing from outside but worth remembering this is a working cathedral and the patrons should be respected.

    Worth a wander. Good contextualisation and information boards and many helpful staff inside. Quite busy - a blend of tourists and worshippers.
