  • Any small museum that took 1.5 hours to visit because of a passionate guide explaining to little nearly everything with a superb effort to do the most possible in french. See especially the showcases with dozens of figurines representing a crèche (but much more). Continues in the Cathedral (very pretty by the way and very well maintained) with the guide. The stained glass windows and the organ are splendid. The visit ends with the view of an oak tree about 500 years (there are several others). The guided tour ends here but there's the cemetery to visit freely (very interesting for the historical side, some tombs dating back to the 1800s). In short, a ballad which, I thought, was going to take more than an hour to take in the facts between 2:30 and 3:00. Cathedral and cemetery; free. Museum guide and$ 3.

  • The cathedral is beautiful, inside and out, but the 500-year-old oak tree which stands right next to it is worth checking out!  more »
  • My sister was visiting from out of state, so we went to the church to pray. It was lovely- beautiful inside.  more »

  • Beautiful church and one of the best places to shoot in as a wedding photographer.
