Enjoy the architecture of this gem - it's not symmetrically built. The stained glass windows are updated and the nave is bright. Lovely English style gardens would make a lovely place to picnic. There is a great view from the church grounds, too.

Huge cathedral with many beautiful stained glass windows and small alcoves and altars. Main altar is set forward of rear wall so it’s possible to walk behind it.

Many good to great churches in Brittany and this one ranks near the top. In fact this little walled town is history. The Chateau Dinan build in 1382 is another site to visit. My guess that this town has bee missed by too many who...More

So lovely to still be able to lit candles in this ancient church. Old glass and frescos inside. This church is still being used today by parishioners.

Nice example of a fairly early Gothic church. Not fancy, somewhat squat and sturdy like the Bretagne people. The stainglass windows tell the story of Anne of Britney and there is a touching window commemorating the lost of World War I.

Most towns in France have beautiful churches, this is one no exception. Not much from outside,inside is something else, just "spectacular" and full of history. You will need more than a basic knowledge of the language to appreciate the full history.

Very tall columns with a oak ceiling. Very ornate centre piece. You can walk around the central worship area.
