French Architecture has always been known for its beautiful work and this place stands true to the saying. This place is really well built and has witnessed lots of events in France including French Revolution but has stood tall. The Architecture inside is worth admiring and open to the public at all times

Growing up overseas, my mother had a habit of dragging us kids to various churches and houses of worship, which of course is not appreciated until one is an adult. This cathedrale was on the visit list when I brought my stepchildren 13 years ago and again I popped in whilst on a walk. Just cannot seem to resist. It... More

This cathedral is one of the biggest I've visited by the side of a river in a small city, it is definitive in its architecture. It is beautiful.
