A beautiful and atmospheric gothic Cathedral with outstanding stonework, including a rare 'jube' (a screen with an upper platform, separating the choir of a church from the nave) I had to look that up! Stunning stained glass windows too.

A superb cathedral with lots of atmosphere. In no way foreboding as some tend to be. Obviously used regularly by the locals and beautifully restored interior.

Just visited there. There is no entry charge. Yes, it is visually appealing with the stained glass windows and the Gregorian chanting music being played on Bose speakers, but in terms of presentation very average. Take 5-10 minutes and continue investigating the neighbourhood.

like most of the churches in Troyes the cathedral has beautiful windows, but also has a number of interesting sculptures as well.

This Cathedral is built on a huge scale with big interior spaces, uncluttered by unnecessary content. Very impressive stained glass windows and magnificent vaulted ceilings.

Especially interesting is the large panel of carved floor tiles Inow wall-mounted) with Old Testament scenes. Fine stained glass, too.

A little way out of town but worth the walk.....outside it is a little lopsided due to missing a right tower but the interior is great very light and really spectacular stained glass, a real sense of peace and a welcome departure from hustle and bustle in the city centre

Bring binoculars. Some of the best stained glass I've ever seen, and from many different eras, so it was like a little museum of stained glass.

The cathedral is well preserved and a fine example of a gothic church. It was not affected during the two world wars and has an interesting history (check it out on Wikipedia). The floor is beautiful and there are too many details that catch the eye.

This is a very nice cathedral, well worth a visit with lovely rose windows. Peaceful with a nice atmosphere - this may sound odd but not all cathedrals have this, some are unpleasant!
