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.

  • Nice Cathedral.. There is no crowd so very nice for shooting but difficult as there is no big space around. I did enjoy it a little :)  more »
  • Th building is quite plain outside, but lovely within - the city idiots graffiti is sprayed on outside walls. The interior is lovely and well worth an hour or more of your time.  more »
  • Rennes Cathedral is very ornate with much gold in its decoration. On either side of the nave are a row of red pillars. As I prefer Gothic or Romanesque cathedrals, this is not a favourite!  more »

  • Very beautiful.
  • 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!

  • Gorgeous golden ornaments. There's also the contrast of red marble. Type not seen in Paris! It's funny that fewer tourists.
