What a beauty Cathédrale Saint-Maurice is, from the Gothic façades heavily carved portals, of which the detail is amazing, to the gargoyles sitting atop the right hand tower. The structure is a combination of Romanesque and Gothic architecture. The richly carved 15th century central portal...More

The building we saw was started the first quarter of the 1100's and replaced an older church structure that did not survive. This church is beautiful for its symmetry, two towers with a large west facing rose window and set of great doors between them....More

This used to be a cathedral but now does not have a sitting bishop. It dates to the 12th thru 16th centuries. It is a very long Romanesque and Gothic style church, not laid out in the classic style. It is here, when Guy of...More
