A magnificent cathedral easily accessible in the middle of this small town. Lovely stained glass and amazing sculptures of the people entombed.

We recently spent a week in Saint-Pol-de-Leon and we visited the cathedral on a number of occasions. It is a beautiful cathedral, some of which dates from the 15th century. There are numerous items of historical interest and, despite the vastness of the cathedral, it...More

Spent 2 weeks based here on holiday. Well placed for exploring Brittany. Went into the cathedral 3 times during my stay as it is in the main square. Very nice simple floral displays of locally grown flowers. Remember to look up at the roof. Front...More

Lovely church, in summer they have organ recitals on a Tuesday morning which is market day in St Pol. The recitals are free but you can make a donation afterwards. The market takes place around the church.

How a small village can have a cathedral like this is amazing. Right in the center of town, it should not be missed. The small chapels should be checked in detail because there is so much interesting history on display.

If you are in Saint-Pol-de-Leon then this church is a must see. It is very impressive and is massive inside. Certainly on a par size wise with a City cathedral in the UK.
