This cathedrale is worth a visit as is the town. There is plenty of parking which is mainly free. It is an easy town to walk around and has some nice coffee bars.

If you are in the area of Coutances. do stop to visit this beautiful Cathedral, which stands majestically in Place du Parvis. At night time it is lit up - a spectacular sight.
