  • The epitome of religious art, both outside and inside. See the choir stalls. And the inner chapels. We find the original paintings. To see the treasure of the Cathedral.

  • Not to be missed during a visit to Amiens! The Cathedral is the largest in France but is especially worth the detour for the works of cabinetmaking present.

  • It's a great cathedral, even if you stare from afar. I admire that it is a world heritage truly. It's worth visiting all the way from Paris.

  • This is yet another fascinating building to visit imposing even in modern structures around it. And the detail in its design architecture and decoration are quite beautiful
  • Quite place nice to visit but food in surrounding restaurants is expencive!
  • Amazing cathedral. Good parking out the front.
  • Its absolutely beautiful. Loved the cathedral and the town’s Christmas market.
  • A beautiful cathedral which is free to enter but donation suggested. Lots of history in just under 1000 years and interesting to learn about its place during ww1. Easy for children to walk around and view the architecture. The most beautiful stained glass windows. Signs in both English and French.
