Very helpful man at the bookstall/ticket sales. He suggested visiting the adjacent archaeological museum. The free organ concert was excellent.

We did not go inside but just the outside gives you the WOW factor, it's prominence within the City is great and the architecture is truly wonderful - highly recommend a visit.

The outside of the cathedral has been cleaned and it makes a real difference inside and outside. There is no shop which is disappointing but apart from that a nice place to visit.

Don't miss to go down The crypt, 2 euro, entrance on the right. It is very evocative, a little Romanesche gem. The church itself is quite typical of this part of france, gothic arches of white limestone

This must be a very special place with the locals taking into account how well preserved the building is and lovingly looked after inside. I was intrigued with the racing bike decorated in plants and flowers I assume this is in memory of someone who had loved riding. Well worth a visit here just to stand back and admire the... More

Well worth a visit. A beautiful peaceful place. Time to reflect from busy site seeing schedule. Gothic style. The coloured roof is well worth a photo of.

This cathedral has so much it would take an hour to describe. Almost missed the interior, as the doors do not have doorknobs. But all you have to do is push the door open to get in. Especially impressive is the organ (rear of the cathedral)
