Cathédrale Saint-Pierre de Rennes, Rennes

(4.1/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
As a Roman Catholic cathedral, Cathédrale Saint-Pierre de Rennes (Rennes Cathedral) is the seat of the Archbishops of Rennes. Built in the 12th century, the Gothic tower and the entire west front collapsed in 1490. Go inside to view the existing façade with its neoclassical granite towers that were constructed in four stages over the next two centuries. During the 19th century, it was extensively refurbished with gilt, stucco, and paintings.

  • Surrounded of buildings, which is rare for a cathedral, the beauty is on the inside. For many enjoy it, do not hesitate to read the comments before the inner door. Disconcerting because its architecture and decoration are not conventional. A detour to make absolutely.
