Description

Light effects created by stained glass windows.

From the height of its schist rock, Angers Cathedral overlooks the River Maine and city.
Near the chateau, the cathedral was built in the form of a Latin cross in the twelfth century. In the sixteenth century, two spires and a central bell were added to the west facade.

The atmosphere is different every time you visit due to the variety of light effects created by the stained glass windows. The best examples are two transept rose windows by André Robin, a master glassblower in the fifteenth century, and Jacques Le Chevallier’s 1957 designs.
