Originally built in between 11th-16th century, this cathedral is the main Roman Catholic Church in Angers. A magnificent amalgamation of Gothic and Romanesque architecture, this cathedral is more than a place of worship:

  • Descriptive and rich image transepts in the form of stain glass windows.
  • Carvings inspired by the royal portal of the Chartres Cathedral.
  • Painting depicting the life of St. Maurilius dating back to the 13th century.
  • The grand organ right next to the altar.
  • The library.

  • Enjoyed the colourful walls and columns here. Didn't see much information about the cathedral itself.

  • Needs restoration on inside. And hardly any information found on: history & construction &/or what to see in Cathedral. For example: a fresco and more... Learned back home by coincidence through reading about Chartres labyrinth, there is one too in Mirepoix.... Situated floor side chapel within cathedral. Size 60 cm, 11 circuit with Minotaur at the centre. C. 1530

  • Très belle Cathédrale. il faut impérativement la visiter l'entrée gratuite

  • Très jolie place devant la cathedrale avec un grand marché le lundi et un plus petit le jeudi

  • Fue casualidad pasar por allí y parar, pero no me arrepiento de haberlo hecho. La catedral es preciosa, con sus infinidad de rosetones, muy bien cuidada.
