  • Beautiful Gothic cathedral with interesting architecture and lovely stained glass windows, just few minutes walk from the city centre There were few persons visiting it when I was expecting crowds, maybe I was just lucky. It worths the visit, no question about it.

  • I visited many cathedrals, and let's admit, they all look a bit the same. Nantes' differentiates itself with the artwork and sculptures found inside the cathedral. It showcases centuries-old tombstones as well as young and fresher paintings. If you like religious artwork, do not hesitate to visit!

  • Beautiful architecture and area in the middle of Nantes, 5 min walk from city centre

  • Very calming and peaceful definitely a place o visit.

  • Worth the visit for the amazing tomb of Duchess Anne's parents.
