Former Cathedral Saint-Samson, French Heritage monument to Dol de bretagne

Dol Cathedral, founded in the 9th century, was burned in 1203 by the troops of Jean Sans Terre. The current building, which had to be started shortly after, is a fine specimen of Gothic architecture of Norman influence. The reconstruction began with the nave, continued by the transept and terminated the choir to 1265. A major campaign's work in the 14th century saw the construction cross Tower, the large South porch, the Hall and the chapel cut-sided high to the East of the choir. The 15th century were the top two floors of the South Tower, and changes of the South porch. The tower north, starts in 1520, was never completed, and the western façade was redesigned in the 16th and 17th centuries.
