  • Beautiful St. John (North) Portal. Beautiful choir surrounded by beautifully decorated radiating chapels and beautiful statues such the chapel of the Virgin (decorated by Alexandre Denuelle in 1859) with N.D. in full light (created by Léa Sham's and Alain Duban), Chapel of Ste-Philomène, Chapel of the Saints-bishops of Limoges, Chapel of the Blessed Sacrament (5 statues: St-Bonaventure, St-Jean, sacred heart, St-Paul and St - Thomas Aquinas). Not to mention the jube (under the organ) adorned with the statues of the 6 virtues.

  • A beautiful cathedral featuring wonderful Gothic architecture. I was there on a weekday and my partner and I were the only ones there which was great.
  • Very very nice Cathedral. If visiting this Cathedral, not is can lose the garden botanical just behind, is beautiful, with sculptures in iron very shocking. The truth is that not is that meaning have, but are macabre, are referred to the death or something similar. Very nice to see plants, little tree. Admission is free and is very careful.

  • Striking Tower. Very long construction period yet of homogenous construction.
