old square

The old cathedral is small compared to some bigger ones like notre damn and not so crowded. The architecture is beautiful with detailed carvings and stainglass work

I stopped in the cathedral during my visit to Versailles. While the church does have a certain beauty about it, it's much smaller than most cathedrals in France that I've seen. It was constructed in the 18th century at the behest of Louis XV. There are some paintings and stained glass windows that are interesting to see. It's really in... More

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).
