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!

We were lucky to be introduced to the Cathedral's rector, who gave us a one hour tour of the Cathedral. He's been there for 4 years now and he has done a remarkable job introducing changes such as a new altar and some modern art of remarkably good taste, considering the odd things you find sometimes in other churches. He... More

300 miles from Calais a perfect stop over if you are on your way to the south of France. The town is so beautiful in the centre square mile...so many things to see and lovely restaurants as well. the cathedral is just one of the many interesting buildings to view.

A religous building on the site for 1,500 years. A predecessor that dominated the town where Rashi lived. Another predecessor where the council was held to lay down the rules for the Templars. A very fine collection of stained glass spared from the destruction of two world wars unlike religous buildings in Reims.You need to take binoculars to admire the... More

I will never cease to be amazed at the accomplishments of the architects, engineers and tradesmen of those times and this cathedral did nothing to lesson my appreciation of their accomplishments.

This cathedral is really big and beautiful, nothing you would expect in this small city but it is worth it! When I came in they had religious music on speaker and it totally completed the experience. I must say, it was more impressing than some other cathedrals I saw in Paris. This medieval city is quiet, friendly and totally charming.
