Some lovely stained glass windows, quite a simple cathedral but obviously well used by local staff. Carving on outside of building very interesting.
The Cathedrale is well worth visiting and, because it was rebuilt twice in the mid-late 20th century, it is in much better built condition than many French cathedrals. Of special visual note is the splendid stained glass windows and the high quality of stone carving.
We thought the cathedral was a bit of a let-down, but perhaps that is because we are so used to lush Italian churches. The only thing we found stunningly beautiful and interesting was the tomb of duke Francis II and his wife.
Its a typical cathedral and thankfully little of the idolatry that so many have. Is obviously very restful and interesting. Worth looking at but nothing remarkable.
