  • Beautiful church in a corner behind the place Delille, well maintained. We see quite easily that the Bell Tower does not date from the construction of the Church from the outside. The inside is nice too, with a nice light summer.

  • Very beautiful Basilica. Unfortunately we could not visit the inside because there was a ceremony (Saturday afternoon). In addition the Tower allowing views over the rooftops of Clermont was also closed because of incivility; too bad. But the building is worth the look!

  • Very beautiful Basilica, must see! The monument that I enjoyed the most in the city center of Clermont-Ferrand, during my short weekend.

  • Beautiful Collegiate Church of Romanesque invoice.

  • Better than the Cathedral in history and conservation. Must stop both culturally and mystical.
