    Inside La Cathédrale Saint-Corentin

    Today, Alive With Color

    An intensive restoration took place from 1989 to 1999 to return the interior of Saint-Coretin to its 15th Century look.. Gothic churches were typically painted in striking colors-- they were not the cold, gray places we often see today. In Saint-Coretin you now experience the glories of a colorful, vibrant, shimmering cathedral.
