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.

  • 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.
  • Great architecture and lovely town.
