Cathedrale Notre-Dame de Laon is one of the most important examples of Northern France Gothic architecture of the 12th and 13th centuries. The building is in a cruciform shape and the choir terminates in a straight wall instead of in an apse. The cathedral has stained glass dating back to the 13th century and a chancel screen from the 18th century. Although the cathedral suffered some damage during the French Revolution and the Franco-Prussian War of 1870, it escaped both World Wars unharmed.

The cathedral is unbelievable. The ceiling height is off the charts high. Sun altars surround the main altar. Nice stained glass windows. Recommended.

Very interesting structure. Fun to find all the animals on it. Towers unlike any I'd seen before. Definitely worth going inside. Tourist information right next door is good to look through.
Lovely cathedral in the old town a bit of an up hill hike but worth it.
