This is a cathedral, but only just. It's early, so Romanesque, so the architecture is a little heavy, with limited windows, not one of the palaces of light that were built later. There is relatively little decoration, too. It's not easy to understand what is...More

On Saturdays there are lots of weddings, but we went in just after one had left and it didn't seem to be a problem. Nice enough cathedral but not as impressive as a lot we have seen.

This church has a nice facade, but the inside is very simple. I was really expecting a fantastic church with more decor and and ornaments

Originally built in the 11th cent it was badly restored in the 19th cent The Hugenots had taken over the cathedral and removed all the papist idolatry. In the 19th cent the restores brought back the papist idolatry.

The present building is layered and has techniques from almost every building era. The church is dark and take away from the overall beauty. It houses some significant art works as well. Not sure why it is so low on the list.
