Although the visit was only about 10 minutes, it was lovely to be able to have a look round such a huge cathedral. With multiple ornate altars, fantastic stained glass and a fantastic church community, it was worth popping in. A place like that must cost an arm and a leg to run so we made a very small donation.

This is a must see compact cathedral. The sanctity of atmosphere is tangible. You must look at the back of the cathedral too where there is an exhibition of sculptures in what used to be the cemetery.

St-Jean Cathedral is located in the center of old town, and it is located very close to a lot of buildings, then it seems disordered (with a doors almost without sense). However it is located in a beautiful square. The outer wall is very beautiful and, for me, the inner walls are normal. It is not so big nor beautiful,... More

This is not the most impressive cathedral but a working church in a working class neighborhood with a spiritual feel. Nice not to be charged for a visit to a place of holiness.

How come people do not talk about this cathedral ? It may look a little ordinary, perhaps even odd, on the outside; but inside it is wonderful. The individual chapels are all stunning, the stained glass is excellent, and it even has a spooky tomb. A must-see if you are in Perpignan.

We were lucky enough to visit when someone was playing the fantastic organ inside, the acoustics are amazing, I could have listened for hours. It's a beautiful, fairly typical cathedral with soaring ceilings, lots to look at, worth a visit. All of the information is in French, so if you don't read French and want to know the history you'll... More
