Description
The Cathedral Saint-Coretin's twin spires in silhouette against a cloudy sky. The unusual cathedral was built out in such a way as not to disturb the older chapel, which contains the tomb of Alain Canhiart. It therefor curves slightly to the left when viewed head-on. The spires, however, are the most recognized features.
