Known for its expansive stained glass windows, Cathédrale Saint-Étienne d'Auxerre is one of the few cathedrals with original stained glass. Built between 1215 and 1233, most of the Burgundian Gothic cathedral is above an 11th century crypt. The oldest portion of the building is the crypt, and the most modern feature is the small cupola atop of the spiral staircase on the western tower with a Renaissance design.

  • The exterior of this Cathedral is very beautiful, there are beautiful sculptures on missing some as in most cathedrals. On the other hand I found inside very gray. My first impression was out because I felt a very great coldness (I mean not climate) I had the impression of entering a forbidden place. Her credit, the stained glass windows are beautiful but unfortunately are not pretty colors inside despite the Sun present the day of the visit. The heart is very sober. I was a little disappointed with my visit because I one had compared to other already visited cathedrals, but to see it anyway.

  • It is wonderfully carved façade, very beautiful stained-glass Windows inside the Church. Visit the flickering of the February snow season and because most other tourist, had to enjoy the splendor of the Church. However, to the underground Crypt is in this winter not Saturday admission only. Fresco of Christ riding a horse but unfortunately couldn't see. This church to refer to themselves, of course, watching from the other side of the River have fun. Really beautiful!

  • This medieval town is situated on a hill above the river Yonne. The most famous monument is the Medieval Gothic Cathedral, built at the turn of the 13TH CENTURY/XIV century. Beautiful and rich interior and believes remain in memory forever.
