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
- Sometimes, recitals and concerts are held at the church, and you can attend these for free. Check for notices on the attraction website.
- You’ll have to walk till here
- Ask the locals for directions.

Nice cathedral.. it has been extensively rebuilt like a lot of StMalo but still retains atmosphere and a sense of age
Not too great as cathedrals go but the (modern) glass windows are quite nice.
Rainy day, got very wet. The rain pouring from the roof was awesome.
The cathedral is stunning and free to view. It may not be as nice as other more famous churches in France, though.
Beautiful cathedral, nice windows and silent
