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

This is a very beautiful place to visit. There is no charge for entry but we gave a donation anyway. The church itself is very plain but the stained glass windows are some of the most beautiful I have ever seen. We were lucky enough to go on a sunny day and this only added to their beauty. If you...

huge spacious building, clean and plain mostly (not too baroque), the usual Jean d'Arc stuff, large organ. A must see fro the stained glass with bright golds and iridescent blues - the sun was throwing coloured splashes on the modern altar. Free.

We went just after midday. The cathedral itself is worth seeing in itself but at that time of day the light coming through the stained glass reflected on the floor and pillars and was simply divine.

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.
