#3 Rennes, Brittany

This is one of the side altars inside the Roman Catholic Cathedrale Saint-Pierre which is still undergoing restoration so we had to navigate our way around the scaffolding. However, this did not detract from the beautiful interior with a Roman High altar, stucco, gilding and chandeliers which was designed to resemble a "Roman basilica". This Cathedral of Saint Peter has served as a backdrop to important moments in the history of both Brittany and France, such as the coronation of the dukes and duchesses of Brittany.

@By Marie: Oh Marie, we fell in love with Normandy and Brittany and would love to return and spend longer, 10 days were not enough.

By Marie from Entre montagnes et Bretagne, France

I understand because they are two very beautiful regions. I am a native of Brittany but I also know Normandy well where I have often spent weekends when I lived and worked in Paris
