This beautiful cathedral must be seen from the distance first. Built between XXII and XIV centuries. One of the greatest examples of Gothic architecture in Normandy.

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.

From the outside this is an impressive cathedral with romanic and gothic elements. It is nice to have a walk around. Finally from the inside we were a bit disappointed, there were for a cathedral of that size not many interesting sculptures or pictures.

It was Sunday Mass time, but we didn't get inside, because the cathedral was closed, the reasons we do not know. Despite this we admired the beautiful Gothic architecture, facade elements, which are typical of this style.
