Originally, Saint-Germain was the church of the rich mercantile merchants. Its plan is original, as is its bell tower: it is the former belfry tower of the guardhouse.
It is a fine example of the flamboyant Gothic style with more recent Renaissance elements. Inside you can admire the oldest stained glass windows preserved in Rennes and an organ which also resounds during the Estivales de l’orgue.
