Fine glass

Very cold in March but worth it for the excellent 16th-century glass. Take binoculars to appreciate it fully.

Located next door to the modern art museum sits this beautiful old cathedral-one can only imagine what people in the middle ages thought upon visiting it. It is cold and dank inside but that does not change the beauty of its stained glass windows. I found interesting the cleaning going on outside. Decades of dirt is slowly being removed from... More

This gothic cathedral with its slender pillars and wonderful stained glass is amazing and transports you back to another age. Just sit and look round, and be amazed at the achievements of the architects and builders and craftsmen of so long ago.

We went to see this cathedral on a moderate fresh day at the end of february. It was extremely cold inside, colder than outside. The temperature did not bother us, it gave us tan idea how it must have been through the ages. The most overwhelming part are ofcourse the glas stained windows , the cathedral is famous for them....

many cathedrals are well known like Reims, Amiens...in France and one hears less about Troyes's cathedral but it is remarkable and deserves the visit. The glasswindows are splendid, the size of the cathedral and its architectural structure are amazing and beautiful
