Cathedrale St-Corentin, Quimper

(650+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building
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.

  • 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.
