It is well worth a visit, when you walk in the doors and look ahead to the stained glass windows it takes your breath away, there is no picture that could capture the beauty of them or show the grandness of the architecture inside!

The steeple of the Cathédrale Saint-Vincent de Saragosse really shouldn't still dominate the stern skyline of this walled port-city. The opening artillery shots of a hard-fought battle between occupying German forces and a liberating American army just two months after D-Day toppled the spire into the nave, and further shell damage plus a devastating fire left the less than half...

Amazing to see the photos of damage sustained in WW2 and how it was rebuilt straight away after the war...would never think upon entering that the majority dates back only 60 years.

Beautiful cathedral and was amazed to see there was no charge or voluntary donation to enter. We did light a candle for 1euro.
