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.

    This total on the outside not decorated Cathedral gives a very different impression when you look within. Great color and no nhoekje that are not modified. Impressive columns Gallery

    Splendid and majestic Cathedral of Rennes. In a remarkable state of preservation, probably very well maintained and renovated. Perfect for a bath of freshness in the summer!
