Cathédrale Saint-Pierre de Vannes, Vannes

(4.4/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
Also considered a basilica, Cathédrale Saint-Pierre de Vannes is the seat of the Bishops of Vannes. The present neo-Gothic building was erected on the site of the former Romanesque cathedral. Its construction extends from the 15th to the 19th centuries, but the Romanesque bell tower dates back to the 13th century. The cathedral has retained tombs dating back to the 17th century, and the tombs of two bishops are in the crypt under the choir. The most remarkable item is a 12th century box made of wood and covered with painted parchment decorated with scenes of daily life.

  • Has related the heart of the old town at the place St. Pierre, surrounded by many historic stone and timber-framed houses on the Hill Méné Cathedral, which was built in the 15th century on the site of a Romanesque chapel in the Gothic style and architectural style live from the 13th to the 19th century. Many timber-frame houses, whose Besonderheit is the connection of a stone ground floor-storey of half-timbered houses is located on the Rue St. Salomon and the Rue St. Gwenaël right of the Cathedral.
