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

this is fairly small for a cathedral and seat of a bishop, but it was incredibly interesting to visit. Don't miss the remains of the cloister to the left side. I also recommend walking around the outside behind the church, you can see how they...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.
