As a Roman Catholic cathedral, Cathedrale Saint-Pierre (Rennes Cathedral) is the seat of the Archbishops of Rennes. Built in the 12th century, the Gothic tower and the entire west front collapsed in 1490. Go inside to view the existing façade with its neoclassical granite towers that were constructed in four stages over the next two centuries. During the 19th century, it was extensively refurbished with gilt, stucco, and paintings.
