Œuvre de la cathédrale, Metz

4.5
The seat of the Bishop of Metz, Œuvre de la cathédrale is a historic Roman Catholic cathedral. Locals call it the Good Lord’s Lantern, perhaps in reference to its huge stained-glass windows. Constructed in Gothic style from yellow limestone, the cathedral dates back to the 12th century. Don't miss the spectacularly high nave, and seek out the Metz bishopric’s rich collection of items used during Holy Communion.

  • If the cathedral is beautiful to look at from the outside, it has impressed me even more inside. Especially the glass windows are very impressive.

  • Huge gothic masterpiece with the exceptional stain glass windows, especially the ones by Marc Chagall.  more »
  • I am, perhaps, not very objective: I am a messiah But, despite the fact that since my childhood, I walk there, I stroll, I breathe it I remain amazed and if you have the opportunity to take the Ferris wheel at the Christmas market, you will see it even closer and closer even higher
