The exterior is imposing and the interior quite majestic with a very high vaulted roof. It is very light and airy. A notable feature is the tomb of the parents of Duchesse Anne, the last Duchess of Brittany.

An impressive Gothic building. The vaulted ceiling is very detailed as are some of the chapels within the Cathederal.It is probably one of the best Cathederals in France & is worth a visit.
