Quite large actually, and amazing architecture. The place is awe inspiring. The intricate carvings on the outside, and the beauty of the interior make this a place to admire.

There is a tour that takes you up there and you need to check with the ticket office and shop to the immediate left of the Cathedral. Google Amiens cathedral Tours for more. Don't miss it.
