A very impressive cathedral in the centre of the town. Restoration work is being carried out at the moment so there is scaffolding around it. Interesting to look round.

Staying just around the corner, seeing this cathedral at night was a delight, a very impressive building which towered above its surroundings. Not somewhere necessarily to visit unless you are already in the area itself.

This is a beautiful cathedral that words will not do justice. Everything about it is interesting . Holds some beautiful pieces inside. If in the area do yourself a favour and take time out to visit.

A beautiful building despite the scaffolding. Inside the stained glass is so blue that that whole place sings with light.

This is a fairly large building with a great deal of history inside. Although there is much to see and read it is all in French that would make a visit more difficult for non-French speakers. The building is well maintained and outside there are...More
