Saint Malo Cathedral

The Saint Malo Cathedral or more precisely St Vincent of Saragosse Cathedral (Cathédrale Saint-Vincent-de-Saragosse de Saint-Malo ) was at one time a Benedictine Abbey. At the turn of the 12th century the church was built in Romanesque style but in the 13th century the choir was rebuilt in gothic style. This church has undergone several transformations so you will see Romanesque, Gothic, High Gothic and Renaissance styles. However, in 1944 during a battle for the city the cathedral was bombed and the choir section collapsed. It took over 20 years to make the repairs.
