  • After climbing down from the city, when we came back in the Cathedral, we were surprised by its interior. Surprised by the beauty of pylons and the vault. See absolutely in Digne

  • We were very disappointed by the crypt which has now only small remnants, we expected a real worthy of the name crypt! The remains are only small walls where it is difficult to imagine things... A few graves and mozaiques of time. We did the tour with an audio-guide, maybe it is - the more interesting with a real guide... For what is the Romanesque cathedral, nothing exceptional either compared to other churches of the same style. We had come to Italy so may be that our vision is distorted by the exceptional richness of Italian cathedrals and churches...

  • Do not confuse the Saint-Jérôme Cathedral, located on a hill overlooking the city, and the Romanesque cathedral of the village, which covers the archaeological crypt. St. Jerome was originally (15th century) the chapel a stronghold crèvecoeur crowning the Hill known as of the Rochas. Expanded over the centuries, she has experienced in the nineteenth of significant changes, following the neo-Gothic particular current at the time, under the direction of an architect from the school of Viollet-le-Duc. Saint-Jérôme is accessible to the public during the summer season. For the faithful, an office is celebrated on Wednesday evening at 6 pm. The Cathedral quarter is being deeply revamped, major works are underway for pietonniser the nearby square and make a pleasant space, who will decide with the vocation of parking that she had until then. It is hoped that the rest will follow, that the neighborhood would host galleries, artists, craftsmen and cultural events that are sorely lacking in this neighborhood long abandoned. The Cathedral of the town is located at the exit of the city, Barcelonnette. It is Romanesque, with loans to the Gothic style (rose) and has known her also to numerous changes. It's an impressive nave where there are, on the sides, dated to the early Renaissance frescoes. The Cathedral of the town is located at the heart of which was the primitive Digne, Gallo-Roman city which the archaeological crypt offers the visitor interesting remains. This is the superposition of two thousand years of history, with the high point the Bell Foundry, dated from the middle ages. It will linger on the pre-Christian altar and the magnificent mosaic that reminds by its reasons that of Ganagobie, later. The archaeological crypt was built following major work of reinforcement of the walls Cathedral. Excavations beneath it, resulted in the discovery of two primitive versions of this building and many tombs. discovered, landscaping of the crypt took a shipyard which lasted not less than thirty years. The Cathedral once fragile, long abandoned, now rests on a concrete base that constitutes the roof of the crypt. This visit is an experience that will appeal to the amateur of old stones like the tourist. Too bad that the explanatory cartels are written only in French and that nothing has been planned around the building, snack bar, restaurant, to suggest the visitor to linger.
