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

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.

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).
