  • This Cathedral (built under Louis XV) imposes by its volumes in gilding decoration reflecting both, I suppose, the spiritual richness, even if not what prefer for contemplation. Deserves to attend a mass.

  • I like cathedrals, and this one I liked it too much because she look great especially inside. And then Sunday at the time of the mass the sound of the bells is a carillon weed that we hear on the entire city, not noisy but very melodic.

  • The exterior does not reflect the inner charm of this Cathedral. Inside is grandiose, the ceiling height is gigantic, the entrance doors are enormisimes. This Cathedral was made by giants! The organ is magnificent... A place to visit through Rennes!
