  • Contains many relics classified historical monuments. Chapels dedicated to ST. VERAN and ST. LAMBERT. The baptistery is decorated by a mosaic of Marc Chagall representing Moses saved from the waters.

  • the Cathedral is not of great interest; It is simple except a beautiful statue of the Virgin

  • Located in the old town, the church is simple but charming. Often a place for musical performances where the locals gather on the weekends.

  • 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
