Must see · Architectural Building · Religious Site
The first thing you’ll notice is that unlike other Gothic cathedrals, Saint Corentin Cathedral bends slightly in the middle to match the contours of its location. This Roman Catholic cathedral is the seat of the Bishops of Quimper-Léon. Go inside to view the beautiful stained-glass windows of the chapel and the 16th century wooden statue of Saint Yves standing between the rich and the poor.

  • Beautiful French cathedral in the lovely unspoilt town of Quimper.
  • Even for a jaded church viewer like me, this cathedral was worth a visit. It isn't just the setting, the stainglass windows or the unusual architectural bend in the floor plan, it is just the way the people here integrate the church into their community, culture and their being.
