  • Wonderful cathedral with beautiful views and plenty to offer. Ensure to see the views available from the back, and have a wander around.
  • The Cathédrale Notre-Dame-du-Puy is a magnificent Romanesque cathedral. It's location in the heart of the old town offers amazing views of the city. You enter the cathedral in the middle by the main stairs which are quite steep but well worth the effort. We were lucky as during our visit there was a Pilgrim's mass on. The Cathédrale Notre-Dame-du-Puy is definitely a must visit.
