This 12th century Roman Catholic monument was once the seat of the Bishop of Saint-Malo. Since it’s initial construction, it’s been rebuilt and added to, and you can clearly see influences of Gothic, High Gothic and Renaissance architecture. In WWII it was bombed and destroyed almost completely and had to be rebuilt – that took 20 years. Today you can see:
- Jacques Cartier’s Tomb
- Jacques Cartier Memorial Plaque
- 18th century statue of the Virgin with Child
- Pretty stained glass windows
- Statue of Our Lady of the Great Door

St. Vincent Cathedral, St-malo Reviews - Write a Review
Not the most beautiful church I've visited, but definitely worth checking out. Entrance is free and the local priest is very helpful.
The final resting place of Jacque Cartier, the man who discovered Canada
The final resting place of Jacques Cartier. A beautiful Cathedral with some excellent stained glass. It's amazing that the place's corners aren't square. The whole thing is a bit of a rhombus.
In such a good state, and so beautiful!
Beautiful cathedral with very beautiful colored windows
