  • Typical French cathederal with magnifcent structures. There are remnants of the old cathedral nearby which are illuminated at night.  more »
  • May be it is a legend but I recommend to visit the cript: it is very special even if you do not beleive in God. There are some bones of St Marteen. It is very closed to the touristic activities.  more »
