The Gothic Roman Catholic Cathedral in Coutances was built in the 13th century. The lantern tower shown in the picture below is designed to provide an intense source of light in the centre of the cathedral. The circle at the centre is meant to represent Heaven, while the earth is the square, and the octagon represents the Resurrection. It is free to visit the cathedral.
