  • Pretty Cathedral. Especially do not miss a visit to the crypt which is awesome! Indeed one can discover that there no need of microphone, amplifier and speakers for the indescribable sounds

  • It's great..check out the crypt..worth the €2
  • Is really big, you'll just find it in the middle of your walk
  • Beautiful Cathedral as the outside with its mass and its roof (typical of Burgundy) glazed tiles from the inside. The crypt is paid but inexpensive (€ 2 I think) and interesting, but short.

  • Gothic style Cathedral was completed in 1393. The pipe organ dates from 1745. The instrument and the places are perfect for music
