If you find your way to Dijon and you are into history, then a visit to this cathedral and the extra down to the crypt is worth the visit. Hiding the body under a pig was an ingenious move.

As we entered, the organist was filling up the interior of this cathedral with beautiful, striking sounds. Made our visit special. This organist sells his CDs in this cathedral's shop. To some, it might be just another cathedral. However, the crypt, the stained glass and...More

Not overly publicised, but this Gothic style Cathedral is a real provincial gem. Do not miss the atmospheric Crypt which is simply but, very well presented. The intricacy of the building structure is amazing for the era. Inside it's a large peaceful haven amidst vaulted...More

The inside is peaceful and the decoration impressive. It’s when you get outside and view the steeple that you do wonder just how did they assemble this that long ago?Truly stunning. Just thinking about scaling the steeple ladder makes me weak at the knees. If...More

Just walked around while waiting for my next train, and saw this beautiful church in the distance. It was a short 10 minute walk there, and wish I had time to go in!

As a church-junkie, I really enjoyed this cathedral - visit the crypt from the 11th Century for 2 euros. Nothing spectacular here (well, maybe the transept stained glass windows), but a nicely designed church that has a very good vibe.

Lovely gothic church with an amazing VI crypt with Romanesque rotunda, which is worth the visit alone.
