  • The façade is quite pretty. Once inside, we find ourselves in the current room lost steps, lacking charm despite its grandeur. No indication is present on the architecture so it is difficult to understand what we see when we are not specialists in Gothic art...

  • Take a tour at the monumental salle des pas perdus. The size of the hearths of fireplaces and height under vault are prodigious. Pull out. Then bypass the 'bloc' of houses and shops encasing the Palace by the left (rue Gambetta, pedestrian). 1st Street which will then be on your left (rue des Cordeliers) will make you spend on medieval arrears of the Palace, an ancient fortress refurbished quite some time... Then you arrive naturally Place Charles De Gaulle to visit Notre Dame la Grande.
