Cathedrale Saint-pierre De Rennes - Review
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.

Cathedrale Saint-pierre De Rennes, Rennes Reviews
Among all the beautiful churches in France this one was meh.
Not a very lively place but the beer in the Cafe Babylone next door is very good!
With some many impressive cathedrals around, this one was average.
Very big and interesting cathedral, not as ornate as many of the other cathedrals I have seen in France but still beautiful.
Beautiful cathedral. Worth a visit - check opening times before leaving!
