  • Fantastic Cathedral- it has just had a full renovation- interior and exterior- to a high standard- the stone work is very interesting and the stone carving above the main entrance is fabulous...  more »
  • Marvellous. Thank you, Giselbertus, for the wonderful sculpture. You can see more of his work in the Musée Rolin.  more »
  • Beautiful building. Lots to see. A lot of renovation and repair taking place. Impressed with the spiral staircase and organ. Couldn’t locate anything in English but it didn’t matter. Will go again  more »

  • Worthy trip to this town. The interior is undergoing major rennovations so only back portion open to public. continue behind and up street to right to a local pottery maker who is in her eighties and been crafting since the 50s.
  • The cathedral is being restored so 90% is closed. Tourist information failed to mention this so we walked up there basically for nothing. What is accessible is beautiful.
  • what a cathedral, one of the best in whole France
  • Currently undergoing extensive interior repair, unknown when complete.
  • Belle architecture!
