Basilica Saint-Sauveur, French Heritage monument to Rennes

The Saint-Sauveur Church was rebuilt from 1703 under the direction of the architect Huguet, who then ended the towers of the Cathedral. In 1719, the choir and the transept were nearing completion, but the building was damaged by fire in 1720. Work resumed slowly, always under the guidance of Haynes until his death in 1730, and then under that of forest. It is to him we owe the façade to the Italian, around 1755. The work was completed in 1764.
