When we visited this beautiful catherdral there was a very good 50s rock music band playing just outside by the bus stand. It was interesting to be inside admiring the stained glass and listening to a very different kind of music than is usually found in church.

Very beautiful, I stronglly reccomend the visit: I do not love churces, and expecially the gotic cathedral use to be quite dark. This one is full of light! You also mus see the tower, very amazing.

Beautiful cathedral, a welcome cool break from the sweltering July heat. The tower is also worth a climb thanks to the stunning views from the top.

The light floods the large nave, although the area of chapels surrounding the choir is rather darker. It is a very attractive cathedral in an imposing square. There are guides offering different languages available (and I mean real people).

Know up front that the cathedral is closed after lunch for sieste, but reopens. Lots of restoration work. My French is not very good, and the volunteers in the cathedral spoke no English. Very beautiful and worth the visit.
