The cathedral is impressive if a little bare, due to being ravaged by several different factions like the revolutionaries ETC There was an organist playing when we visited , this gave a special atmosphere.

Worth a visit to see the stained glass windows and gardens to the rear with great views of the Loire.

A good walk up the hill will bring you to the cathedral. Massive structure, newer stained glass windows.

We walked up to the cathedral bit when we got there, it was not that impressive really. However, there are some beautiful gardens behind it with a little cafe which were worth the trek up.
