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.

An interesting building, in that it collapsed several times, was never finished and has one end just apparently cut off. In a pretty square, with cafes and restaurants dotted around and right next...

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.
