    It was hard to find the entrance. Small with interesting gravestones of Roman origin and a beautiful mosaic by Chagall. Visit to try not to lose.

    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.
