  • Beautiful gothic cathedral - unusual for its twin spires plus a large tower over the nave. Many lovely statues on the exterior and large stained glass windows inside. Don't miss the murals in the crypt.
  • The light show on the outside of the cathédrale is beautiful ..It encourages you to reflect..positively
  • I've been to numerous cathedrals, more than I know in number, of various sizes, and this was one of the most breathtaking. There's a little bit of an underground to the cathedral. At the time, probably some of the oldest things I've seen with my own eyes. Baueux around it is so pleasant, winds calmly and beautifully. If you want to experience the French countryside, I would put this on your list.
  • The most beautiful cathedral I've ever been in. Everything about this masterpiece is breathtaking!
  • Beautiful and unique style...roman and gothic
