The Old Quarters
In the old quarters, several half timbered corbelled 16th and 17th century houses still remain. The finest, l'hotel des Ducs de Bretagne and the Ribeault, have ornately carved srting beams, columns and corner post.
Inside of the cathedral I found several tombs and effigies (most carved in the 17th and 18th century), and one of them is the tomb of Saint-Guillaume, who was bishop of Saint-Brieuc from 1220 to 1234.
