  • A beautiful building, in my opinion superior to Rouen Cathedral. Try and visit as soon as it opens at 8.00am to get the best of the light. Entrance is free, and the people very friendly.  more »
  • One of the great, monumental cathedrals (jusqu’ à ciel) with ornate carving and free to enter in the heart of the city amongst very good retail shops and restaurants.  more »
