Beautiful building very impressive, unfortunately we visited on a Sunday and there was a service taking place so could not fully appreciate the architecture and splendour. Useful brief history in English inside entrance. Well worth a visit

Much more impressive than Saint Étienne Cathedral. A perfect example of Romanesque architecture on a huge scale and using local materials.

Went over early on a Saturday, so it was not crowded. Great Basilica with lots of places to explore. The only down side is that the main altar was closed to visitor and could not get close to it

This is a beautiful church, no doubt about it. However, when I visited, the alter was well secured behind iron rungs (like jail) and it was hard to view the interesting and highly adorned alter.
