"I do really agree with the other reviewers on this! Why is this cathedral not more famous and visited? We have been in cathedrals around Europe but this is really a gem! Maybe it felt very special because it really took us with a surprise. We were only visiting Beauvais for an evening, waiting for a..." RyanAir plane to Bologna, we did not know about the cathedral before it suddenly appeared in front of us, and it was really breathtaking on the outside and unforgettable on the inside.

"So many people make the trek to Amiens, Rouen or Paris to see their lovely and historic cathedrals. However, what many don't realize is that en route to any of these places is Beauvais which holds one of the rare gems of Gothic architecture.
When construction began in the 13th century, the notorio..."us Bishop of Beauvais aspired to make this the tallest cathedral at that time. Soaring to nearly 50m, this construction remains a marvel of medieval ingenuity and to this day remains the tallest Gothic nave in the world.
Over the centuries and during its building, the cathedral's astounding height was a constant issue. This wondrous work has experienced constant collapses and fires. It has endured two world wars and disrepair.
Recently, the renovations have been completed and now she stands grandly over the charming city of Beauvais. Truly one of the unique cathedrals in the world, take a few minutes to visit this inspiring and beautiful structure. You won't be disappointed.
