  • On the square: a whirlwind of leaves, evil, we... But who can say that the devil is really bad, where, initially it was Lucifer, bearer of light, God's favorite Angel... Visitors to this magical place don't forget to take a look (oblique) on the desk, decorated with a majestic Eagle, absolutely Wizard!

  • The Saint Pierre Cathedral, which was built in the 15TH century on the basis of a Romanesque building is located in the central area of the city. It has a façade with sheds with pointed arches and a doorway with arches of the same characteristics and on which you can see interesting sculptures. Outstanding is its enormous around Bell Tower 58 metres high which was left unfinished and that a dome was added. The Church has a nave and two side with several chapels. The interior is very sober, white stone and pillars with little decoration. It has an important organ and beautiful stained-glass colors. From the cruise you can be accessed to the cloister and an annex building from treasure. Access to the Cathedral is free and there are guided from late June until September. Us not could access to the cloister, but the visit to the Church is very interesting and is worth the penalty make it.

  • Beautiful Cathedral . Well worth the visit of you are in the area
  • Various restorations have really fixed it. Amazing wooden ceiling.

  • This is probably one of the most beautiful cathedrals in France, at least for my taste, with Bourges, Chartres, Tours, Poitiers, Lille, Orléans, and Clermont-Ferrand. Geographically I grant you, this choice remains fairly central, but I'm from the Region Centre Val de Loire... 😅
