A lot of the cathedral dates from the 12th century, obviously with later additions, and feels very old and historic. It also feels like a 'living' cathedral and is very peaceful. Being a little way from the centre of the town and shops, it is...More

Interesting Romanesque Cathedral in Vaison-la-Romaine. The Cathedral, which dates from the 11th and 12th centuries, is built on the ruins of a Roman temple, which you can see on the outside of the church near the altar.

Although the interior of this cathedral is rather less impressive than most in terms of artwork etc, it is worth seeing nevertheless to take in the stark, minimalistic style of the building and tha fact that it contains stonework from Roman times.

Here you can see how the Christians used pillars and other stones of the Romans as fundament of their church. Not to miss before or after the visit of the Roman site.
