  • What a great story this small Cathedral that has to count a certain number of Bishop (more than 70) from late Antiquity to the present day. Built on a temple dedicate has March and and Cybele. Rebuilt after its destruction by the Moors in the IX ° s. It counts as the most well-known bishop the Bishop Farnése who became Pope Paul III even when... Good as it came only once but gave the relics that are still in the Cathedral. Do not forget the Chagall mosaic. Visit and why not take the opportunity to take the guided tour by registering the (office of tourism of the Place of the garden!

  • An interesting, unusual, petite cathedral. Full of beautiful objects and paintings. Shame that it is rather dark but that actually adds to the atmosphere and experience.  more »
  • The Church is ancient but architecturally says little. Worth joining for the mosaic by Chagall. Outside several Roman gravestones are included in the wall of the Cathedral. Totally inadequate signage to find the entrance.

  • Beautiful cathedral in one of the most beatiful towns in France. It's a quiet place. If you don't believe, it's a great place to think. The facade is very colourful. The inside is very nice as well. The floor is beautiful. Take a seat on one of the benches and take a good look around. You'll love it. The mosaic at the baptisery, made by Chagall, is very colourful.
  • Excellent Cathedral with a Mark Chagall mosaic and a collection of exquisite 16th century stations of the cross carving, look out for the cheeky misericords.
  • Worth a visit
