The cathedral has a very ornate interior, with plenty of gold paint and large paintings, which can only be seen partially due to the rather dim lighting (probably designed to preserve them). A peaceful place to escape from the busy-ness of life.

We never heard of this cathedral, frankly before the visit we never heard of Perpignan. This cathedral is simply stunning! A great place to sit and breath, enjoy architecture and imagine past times.

This is a pretty impressive cathedral with great paintings and statues. I'm not really a big fan of the display of wealth and arrogance of the church, but there is room for admiration for the architecture here. Definitely worth visiting if you are in town.

It was interesting to visit this cathedral. Travelling around through France and Spain has given me the opportunity to see many cathedrals and although this one is certainly worthwhile to see, I felt it was ..... Touristy.

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
