Inside the the cloisters was very quiet as you'd imagine and a nice place to sit. Great views outside the cathedral overlooking the river below.

It’s difficult to miss this wonderful building if you are in Périgueux: although the best views, in our opinion, are from the river. Striking though it is from the outside, descending into the interior opens up an unexpected world of space, white pillars and interlocking arches. The central altar is beautifully lit, and can of course be seen equally from all sides. There is a gift shop at the west end with a nice range of goods and cards, which helpfully provided two presents we were needing to find.

No trip to Périgueux would be complete without a visit to the Cathedral. Free to enter although I made a donation in the box in the wall peaceful and calm.

Beautiful historic place. We stopped here as we were driving on highway - on our way from Fatima to Prague. This cathedral and this city were well worth the time.

it was raining so a perfect opportunity to go inside and have a look at this cathedral and I wasn't disappointed. It was stunning. We lit a candle and took it in the awe of this building and its design and respectfully left.
