  • His triptych, its cloister and its baptistery... it is incommensurate. Yet its beautiful façade, is not very big and you cannot imagine without entered many times mixed with the same aesthetic.

  • The cloister of the Cathedral is superb the visit was exciting thanks to the excellent review of the guide. It's a shame that the altarpiece of the burning Bush of Nicolas Froment proposal closed. A real deprivation for the public (including Christian!).

  • At this time it is not open to the public, it's not worth the visit. The Cathedral is undergoing restoration and the entrance is closed. And in any case from the outside you see very little.

  • A nice cathedral with some wonderful large paintings. A bit dark, but that is kind of usual. Got a special little tour into a normally locked side garden. The former Roman columns were quite well preserved. Worth a visit.
  • Excellent guide tour of claustre. Very detailed explanation and could see that she was really motivated. Recommended.
  • Nice cathedral but not especially different from other. Walking distance from city center.
  • Historic but not spectacular. At least that's what I thought this morning. Looked much better tonight when there was a (free) Mozart concert being held there!
  • OK
