Create an itinerary including Cathedrale Saint-Pierre
Cathedrale Saint-Pierre is an incomplete Roman Catholic cathedral. It is considered a daring achievement of Gothic architecture and consists of only a 16th century transept and a choir with seven 13th century polygonal apsidal chapels. Several chapels still contain their original medieval stained glass windows made during the 13th through 15th centuries. You can see a medieval clock from the 14th or 15th century that is likely the oldest fully preserved and functioning mechanical clock in Europe.

  • Wow what a magnificent cathedral. Awesome to visit and marvel at the construction which has stood for centuries. I have to say this that one need’s to behave and dress in a respectful manner as in any place of worship. There is a souvenir shop here and it’s wheelchair 🦽 accessible there are no toilets here. Well worth a visit when your journey takes you to or through Beauvais.
  • Worth it every single moment! Beautiful windows, high ceilings and the most wonderful Astronomical clock of the world! Absolutely amazing!!! Fully recommended this experience. You can rent for $5 euros the video/audio that plays at periodicals times and enjoy the detailed story behind the clock.
