Not very fancy like Notre Dame or Saint Chapelle, but very beautiful. Small and quiet beautifully proportioned.

The grand plaza in front, unique in this city, the grandeur of the construction, the solemnity of its interior, elegant yet simple. Worth walk around the quarter and discover the small restaurants and stores, the market and fairs. A true pleasure.

On your way out from Versailles back to the train station make a small detour and stop by this cathedral. It is a nice spot away from the commercialism of the main streets. Wander the back streets to get a more residence feel of Versailles. Standard European cathedral with some activities. Some cafes around to give your feet a rest... More

Well worth visiting. Go to the Potage on your way if you would like to be educated in the ways of fruit production(hardly anyone goes there). Cost €4.50/each. You will have the place to yourself. Best time when the fruit trees are in flower(spring).

In side a very impressive Cathederale with a long hostory going back to Louis XIV, maybe not as decorative as some cathederales we... More

Sometimes when you are not looking for something you can have the most memorable experience. This cathedral dominates the cobbled square in the centre of the oldest residential quartier of Versailles,the Saint Louis area, which comprises original 16 century buildings many of which are being restored. On the day we stumbled on this area walking back to our hotel in... More

Beautiful old building, lovely stained glass windows. The churchis currently being updated, as its very run down. the high glass windows are lovely, however the lower windows are plain or have clear glass. Nice church to sit in and reflect on the day.
