Excellent cathedral and lots of mediaeval architecture to explore. The astronomical clock is also worth a good look! There are some excellent stained glass windows to​ admire.

The Cathedral of Saint Peter of Beauvais is a must if you are interested in Gothic architecture. Portions of the building collapsed twice and it was never completed. It doesn't have a tower nor a nave yet it is the highest-vaulted cathedral in Europe impressive...More

Cathedral is on the site of the previous Roman cathedral which was demolished but parts of it still remain. Medieval clock still exists and stained-glass windows.
