Basilique of Saint-Michel

The Basilica of Saint-Michel, another breathtaking Gothic cathedral, was built between the end of the 14th century and the 16th century. The separate 114 meter (374 feet) tall tower, built in the 15th century, makes an easy beacon to follow when searching for this cathedral, located in the ancient quarter of Saint-Michel.
The original stained-glass windows were destroyed during bombings in 1940 and have been replaced. We loved the modern glass windows created by the french artist, Max Ingrand. He created dozens of stained glass windows throughout France and the world, including windows in the dome of the Washington Cathedral, in Washington D.C. and St. Dominic’s Church of San Francisco in the USA as well as the windows of the Saint-Etienne church of la Malbaie and Lac-au-Saumon, both in Quebec, Canada.
