  • Small facade and exterior dimensions, not draw much attention, but upon entering you das account that has its charms, the high altar, some chapels, paintings and figures. The ceiling is also to highlight. Recommended.

  • Cathedral of basilical plan of the 12th and 13th centuries, this religious building is worth at least for its choir. Composed of seven chapels (two are inaccessible because of work) to uneven conservation, it presents some curiosities like the stone marked with the seal of the tailors. The chapel of Saint Joseph is not the most happy because it has been redone in a dreadful painted green, which denotes completely with the dark side of this small Cathedral. The survey work for very many years show the remains of ancient frescoes, unfortunately little highlighted. Moreover, in the chapels, tables are often poorly lit and it is not possible to enjoy. However, the panels describe what contain the chapels, which is intellectually very nice. The chapel of Saint Eutrope, patron of the city, is probably the better maintained. It contains an altar from the end of the 19th century and a cenotaph of the beginning of the century said the choir is the the most worked with the presence of a triumphal arch separating pre-chancel and chorus, and with a sham. The white marble high altar dates from the 17th century and is in beautiful condition. The stained glass windows date from the 19th century. As for the roof, he is naked stone, adding a note of gravity at the scene. Externally, we must stop the portal South, beautifully worked. An explanatory panel describes cleverly architecture, including the piers to escarpments. If everything is not very well developed, what brings a lot of information and knowledge.
