I visited Eglise St, Leonard on Easter Saturday and it was so impressive. The architecture is impressive and the stained glass is very interesting. The organist was practicing for Easter Mass and the whole experience was awesome.

Great centrally-located church in Old Town Fougeres. Not a tourist attraction per se, so maybe not open regularly 9-5, but if you can catch it when it's open, the church as a beautiful interior with wonderfully-detailed stained glass of the Notre-Dame/Chartres variety depicting biblical/canonical events....More

really quite a lovely place to visit - especially when there is an exhibition on. Far larger than it looks from outside
