Cathedrale Saint-Maurice d'Angers began as a small church but grew into a full-fledged cathedral with the passage of time. It is exceptional for its nave at 48 m (157.5 ft) long and 22 m (72.2 ft) wide, with a gothic gate and a tower that reaches 60 m (197 ft) into the sky. Walking into the cathedral gives you a sense of the eternity the architecture was meant to represent.

  • Lovely cathedral with free entry. The stained glass windows are amazing as was the crib at the cathedral entrance.

  • The cathedral is awesome, but its windows steal the show. Old windows and “modern” windows capture the space we witness from below.

  • The cathedral is very nice, well kept and with a lot of history and interesting facts or weird things. You can easily discover them thanks to free guided tours available (in French). The guides are very knowledgeable and easy to listen to, you can join any of them at any point of their tour. I find this is a great service for the community!
  • I got there and the chanting was just starting. Maybe check times for this before going. Really nice to experience this. Maybe read the wiki page before going so you know what to look out for.
