This Gothic style Roman Catholic cathedral, the longest in Brittany, is built on the remains of an old Roman cathedral. Sheltering the relics of Saint Vincent Ferrier since 1419, this historical monument, which is actually a minor basilica, is also a place of pilgrimage on the Tro Breizh route (a pilgrimage dating from the Middle Ages that links the towns of the seven founders of Brittany).
