TRAVEL THE WORLD - QUIMPER, BRITTANY, FRANCE
In 2008 we visited this very attractive cathedral, built between the 13th and 16th centuries, and located in Quimper, Finistere, Brittany. The stained glass is some of the nicest we have seen. It is easy to imagine from this example how stained glass was originally intended as a way to instruct people about Christianity and the life of Christ at a time when hardly anyone could read and write.
