This lovely neo-classical 19th century Roman Catholic Cathedral is the seat of the Archbishop of Rennes. It’s not the first building on the site – the first cathedral here was built in the 6th century. From the outside, it looks sombre and granite. It’s when you step in though, that the sheer sumptuous decorations blow you mind – rare marble, and gilt, and stucco, and paintings. See the stunning 15th-century Gothic gilded wooden altarpiece. In the winter, when there are no tourists, it is almost magical.

  • Magnificent with the gold inside of the Cathedrale.

  • Very beautiful.

  • De toutes les cathédrales de France, il doit s'agir de celle que je trouve la moins intéressante. Bâtie en style néo-classique au 19ème siècle (à l'exception de sa façade du 18ème siècle), presque tout y est raté : - il y a très peu de fenêtres et il y règne un mélange entre lueur électrique et perpétuelle obscurité, - la décoration, d'inspiration antique, est grandiloquente est presque ridicule tellement les erreurs historiques et artistiques s'y empilent, - les couleurs sont froides et sinistres, - le style qu'on a déjà vu partout dans les édifices de cette époque, fait davantage penser à un palais de justice ou une banque.

  • Imposante. L'intérieur est somptueux. Plus proche des basiliques romaines que ses monuments français.
