Didn't have time to go inside but already love the place. So nice. The fact that Tours is just a small town around the center if you keep patroling then you cannot miss it. Another lovely place to visit in Tours.

Definitely a place to visit while in Tours.A short walk away from old town,this cathedral has some beautiful stained glasses and was built from the 11-12th century ,a lot of history behind it.

Beautiful cathedral, a must see while in Tour. They had a light show on the outside of the cathedral at night. A very beautiful sight.

Tour is a stunning historic city full of interesting landmark buildings and bustling restaurants and bars but the central landmark is this amazing Cathedral that is simply breathtaking. Whatever else you visit make sure you do not miss out on the Cathedrale St-Gatien

Don't know if I have ever seen a bad cathedral so calling this one good doesn't necessarily give much of a review, but it is a good cathedral. Nice gargoyles. Nice windows.

The cathedral is a must see! We went with a couple of friends. The stained glass windows were amazing. We recomend to take some binoculars to enjoy the details. Stay a little bit longer at night to enjoy the light show during summer.

This is a lovely cathedral, tucked away in the back streets of Tours. The stained glass windows are beautiful. During summer months there is a light show projected onto the exterior of the cathedral, which is definitely worthwhile watching

Stumbled into this cathedral on my travels and was very lucky. The interior is quite beautiful with high domed ceilings but I happened to be there while a 10 piece string section were playing. The acoustics in the church are outstanding. The music was absolutely...More
