This cathedral sits in the very centre of town and so is easy to access. It is worth a look as it has some very beautiful stained glass and impressive reliquaries (whose skull fragment is that?) Quite grand.
The Cathedral dominates the center city main square. Nearly 1600 years old, it has been rebuilt a few times after some damage. Nice to visit. We attended mass with the Bishop on Sunday and enjoyed the service
The town of Quimper is very nice and I would highly recommend time here. The cathedral is Gothic with an elaborate external facade. The inside is stunning with a very high arch ceiling. There is a timeline of Christianity which is very interesting.
It's an amazing privilege to see inside a building of this age, and to see it still as a living breathing working building.
We visited as a singer was rehearsing, one of my children was fascinated by the process that she was going through.
Even my 6yo (who was under strict instructions to keep quiet) managed a loud whisper “wow!” when we entered! Stunning stained-glass scenes and the enormous proportions of the cathedral were breathtaking.
