“Beautiful stained glass windows by Chagall”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2012

This is a magnificent cathedral with beautiful stained glass windows. The Chagall windows are brilliant but my favourite are the windows in the chapel of the Holy Sacrament by Roger Bissière and Jacques Villon. Apparently there are more stained glass windows in this cathedral than any other church worldwide.

“A most interesting gothic church”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2012

In the late afternoon, the setting sun imparts an incredible bright brown color to the church walls and towers.
The fassade is very interesting and the lead vitrals are outstanding.

“THE GLASS!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2011

An enormously high nave in the French style - almost as high as Beauvais, with the most wonderful collection of glass from the 14th century to a wonderful half dozen big Chagalls. Don't just zoom past on the Autoroute
