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 Reviews & Ratings
Almost entirely rebuilt after war destruction. Beautiful with newer windows, modern altar depicting the four gospel writers in gold, background.once a lovely turquoise like nearby throne now a less lovely brownish. Sadly no postcards at all of these treasures.
It was a lovely little church with very pretty stained glass. Nice and cool inside. Very peaceful.
Very tranquil though Catholicism is much subdued the glorious architecture is a wonder.
Quite dark and stark inside but I suppose with its history, only to be expected! Would I visit again? I don't think so.
Unusual layout makes for an interesting site.
