I visited this church twice - first during mass and the second time outside service hours. I suggest coming for mass so that you can appreciate how the architecture elevate one's spirit and provides the acoustics for the organ/choir. After the service you can walk...More

A peaceful cathedral that has a few notable highlights including the excellent stained glass windows and the impressive spire.

Not the prettiest of cathedrals but it's up against some pretty tough competition in France. Read about it's recent history before judging it - badly damaged in 1944. Many years of restoration. Nave is wonky! Still a place of peace, quiet and prayer. No commercialism,...More

The remarkable thing about St Vincent Cathedral is that the spire can be seen from such a great distance; an excellent landmark whilst walking round the Old City as it helps to prevent you getting lost! Up close and outside it seems less imposing but...More

This church is located in the old part of town and is very difficult to get a picture. We did not get inside so can't say anything about that

Not as impressive as many French cathedrals but on very restricted site and some interesting features - not least the way the east end falls away unusually thanks to the gradients of the site.

Large church with great stained windows. Beautifully restored after The War. Plaque to those lost in the wars.
