Not the largest church in France but very pretty. Free to enter. Some chapels obviously renovated and others in poor repair. Looks like some war damage as not much stained glass

We stayed at the Ibis hotel in the centre and walked to the cathedral. It is impressive and appears to be having a lot of restoration work. The stained glass windows were amazing. It was interesting.

We popped in as we were driving by and were so glad we did. The outside does not hint at what it inside. Intricate carvings , statues and lovely paintings. The way the altar was lit was just stunning as was the stained glass. In...More
