St Vincent Cathedral, Saint-Malo

4.4
#1 of 6 in Historic Sites in Saint-Malo
Currently a Roman Catholic cathedral dedicated to Saint Vincent of Saragossa, St Vincent Cathedral is a Romanesque cathedral that has been managed by the monks of Marmoutier since 1108. The pulpit dates from the 18th century, and the western façade of the nave has neo-Classical décor from the 18th century. Housed in the spire are four bells, and many modern renovations adorn this place of worship. The key to this cathedral is listening to its Korg organ playing ancient French and German repertoire.

  • This cathedral looks and feels old with very little in the form of any religious symbols. I expected more like the cathedral of Roman or the UK but then maybe this one is a better example of a church ...  more »
  • Impressive huge catherdral. Interesting nave layout and pulpit. Lots of features to enjoy and no entry charge.  more »
  • The Cathedral is a feast for the eyes from afar and stroll down the city, then suddenly standing before that. Enter and enjoy the architecture and also the quiet in contrast to the bustling city. I'm glad to see that everything was reconstructed again so great.

  • Not the most beautiful church I've visited, but definitely worth checking out. Entrance is free and the local priest is very helpful.
  • The final resting place of Jacque Cartier, the man who discovered Canada
  • The final resting place of Jacques Cartier. A beautiful Cathedral with some excellent stained glass. It's amazing that the place's corners aren't square. The whole thing is a bit of a rhombus.
  • Beautiful cathedral with very beautiful colored windows
  • In such a good state, and so beautiful!
