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.

  • 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.
  • Impressive and free entrance
  • Nice church
