Cathédrale Saint-Julien du Mans

Saint Julian cathedral, which combines a Romanesque nave and a High Gothic choir, is notable for its rich collection of stained glass and the spectacular bifurcating flying buttresses at its eastern end.

On the right hand corner of the west facade is a 4.5m high prehistoric menhir , locally known as the Pierre St Julien (St Julian's Stone). Natural weathering of the sandstone has given the menhir's surface an unusual appearance, superficially similar to carved drapery.
