Cathedrale St-Corentin, Quimper
(4.5/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Located in the centre of Quimper (you can't see it), the Saint Corentin Cathedral is for Quimper as the Eiffel Tower in Paris. It can be easily visited through many descriptive panels inside that tell its story. So quiet place of contemplation, in contrast to his courtyard outside where take place of many animations, carousel horses, cafes, restaurants. Adjacent friendly and commercial streets.

  • Worth a wander. Good contextualisation and information boards and many helpful staff inside. Quite busy - a blend of tourists and worshippers.
  • Nice church
  • Beautiful Cathedral that draws attention mainly because his ship is not straight, has a small curve that, as they say, symbolizes the inclination of the head of Christ on the cross. Quimper is a beautiful, typically Breton city.

  • A beautiful Cathedral which you feel emotion when we go in. I wanted to take the tourist train one day and there are a few explanations about the architecture of the Cathedral, which are very interesting for those who want to give life to the images they have in mind.

  • Sumptuous religious building classified Historical Monument. The Cathedral is very impressive and his arrows that culminate has more than 75 m are visible kilometers has the round. Its Gothic architecture as well as its vast interior are really worth a visit.
