Description

Treasure within a treasury.

Built in the 12th century with changes being made up until the 19th century, the Cathédrale Saint-Pierre de Vannes has a composite but nonetheless harmonious style.

Not far from the sacristy, accessible by a staircase, the cathedral’s treasury holds a huge collection of liturgical objects from the cathedral and from neighbouring villages. Chalices, ciboria, patens, altar crosses, monstrances and other reliquaries are evidence of gold and silverware over the centuries.
