    There are plenty of interesting buildings and mediaeval streets to explore in Annecy and this cathedral is perhaps not one of the less interesting ones. For a start, the interior is quite dark. Of cou...  more »

    The Cathedral is sober enough to the outside as well as inside. Several other churches like our Lady of Liesse worth more in Annecy.

    Never seen three rose Windows, if I remember correctly, at one religious structure, and all well executed as the stained glass Windows.

    Overall not impressed. It feels neglected and it was smelly in my opinion. There are much nicer churches to visit.

    Fortunately, during the French Revolution, it was converted into a temple for the goddess reason and that must have preserved from the ruin that plagues other churches converted into stables! All about St. Francis de Sales, what is chosen by Don Bosco as a patron of his order and founder together with Chantal's Saint Joan of the order of the visitation. I found that the Church has played important moments of his life, in fact many things they remember and we find it in Windows, in the pulpit and an altar with two plaques dedicated to him. Beautiful organ and classical choir with two wonderful legii eagle-shaped and Angel holding a book. Nice picture in which she removes Jesus from the cross that is school of Caravaggio. Let us not forget the rosettes that are unusually three and the other altars with scenes carved in wood!

    The visit has to be slow and a lot of prayer. Don't be in a hurry. Sit down and make a reflection of your life and be grateful.

    Built in 1535 to accommodate a community of Franciscans, became interim Cathedral of the Bishops of Geneva, Annecy refugees after the Reformation.
