  • Majestic campanile Rainbows arch, and especially imposing portal with his Christ to the 4 evangelists and historical sculptures, the Cathedral of Angoulême is undoubtedly a masterpiece of Romanesque art charentais. Focus especially on the outside, because inside unfortunately suffered the sudden restoration of Viollet-le-Duc in the nineteenth. This allowed to preserve the work, but at what cost: the inner space has lost all the charm of a Romanesque atmosphere in favour of a strict ordering of stones to the sparkling whiteness. Note the Nice alignment of domes, which here replace the vaults that are usually found in the aisles, and characterize the large Romanesque charentais.

  • Do and redo. This Cathedral is so beautiful since her long restoration should not happen next during a walk on the ramparts

  • Recently opened to the public, the parts devoted to the treasure of the Cathedral are to visit without hesitation.
