However, it is worth visiting as either a tourist attraction or as a worship venue on Sunday morning. Please honor the patrons of the cathedral who... More

Visited with family, several times. The columns, carvings, tombs, all above expectations. The façade is amazing. Allow at least 20 minutes for a good visit.

The important thing in Nantes, there are really less traffic lights, mostly clean city and the cathedrale visit is a must place.

It has a striking first impression and is very well maintained in perfect condition. We went and sat inside for a while and wondered at the amazing feat of engineering as well as escaping... More
