The Cathedral of Saint-Malo

A large tile on the floor of the cathedral reads, “Here Jacques Cartier knelt to receive the blessing of the Bishop of Saint-Malo on his departure for the discovery of Canada May 16, 1535. Honoré Mercier, Prime Minister of Quebec, souvenir of his visit in 1891.”

Like the rest of the walled city of Saint-Malo, on the northern coast of Brittany, the church is stunningly beautiful.
