If you’re in Mirepoix it’s well worth taking some time out to visit the beautiful cathedral. We visited twice, once on market day for a bit of peace and quiet, and once on a quieter day for another look at the beautiful windows, altars and...More

Attended the Christmas Eve mass in the beautifully lit cathédrale. A special atmosphere at night sitting in such an historic building, yet one which is still used fully today. Of course, at night, you cannot appreciate the gorgeous stained glass windows, so. Day visit is...More
