  • Located at a height, this Cathedral is very nice but it lacks a bit of hindsight to see from the outside. His eardrum is really beautiful and it is also the most beautiful room in this building, the rest being say classic without too many features. The explanations on this place are very interesting and educational. So to see!

  • If you go through Autun this magnificent cathedral is without doubt an essential part of this rich city of history.

  • The Cathedral of Autun is absolutely worth visiting. Go inside and get a big cardboard "sign" where you will have all the explanations about the details of the eardrum as well as a few scenes on the inside at the top of the pillars. For children, it might be like a "treasure hunt".

  • A highlight of this ancient Roman city. Remarkable carved tympanum. Very nice paved over the square.

  • Romanesque and Gothic Cathedral. The eardrum is a wonderfully written story. A highlight.
