We visited Angers recently on an excursion from a cruise on the River Loire. We were taken to the Cathedral. It is a very imposing building, containing some interesting stained glass, a beautiful organ above the main entrance, and a pulpit that is exquisitely carved.

Everything is this city is harmonic, a great religious place that you feel the greatness of peace, love and faith when you are inside. Lots of history like all other Cathedrals in France, in a huge simplified presentation. God Bless.

A very imposing cathedral, with some very impressive stained glass windows - all with helpful explanatory displays in French, English and German. Well worth a visit.
