  • This church is very pretty with a ton of beautiful stained glass windows. Worth a walkthrough. It won't take long. It's just a bit out of the way.  more »

  • I like this place it's very beautiful clean and you can walk around to looking the town it is so nice to come alone friends or family they have many nice buildings around to take a look and picture and it's not too far from Paris by train and easy transport
  • Amazing location, beautiful detail in the vitrals, and in the sculptures. The cathedral is open to visitors for free. It has a Gothic style similar to Notre dame's in Paris. It has a small square in front from where you can take awesome pictures.
