Marvellous. Thank you, Giselbertus, for the wonderful sculpture. You can see more of his work in the Musée Rolin.

Worthy trip to this town. The interior is undergoing major rennovations so only back portion open to public. continue behind and up street to right to a local pottery maker who is in her eighties and been crafting since the 50s.
The cathedral is being restored so 90% is closed. Tourist information failed to mention this so we walked up there basically for nothing. What is accessible is beautiful.
