Gorgeous Cathedral

It was so nice to see this piece of history, and the organ inside in particular is absolutely beautiful. Definitely worth the visit!

You can debate about taste in various centuries but the fact that this building actually was built on in such different ages gives it a special feeling, the inside of the catholic church is gothic . it is way bigger than anticipated from outside and I wish I had some explanations or a guide book with me. lots of school...

liked: 5th century baptismal font and mosaic and fragment of fresco on right near entrance. Also peaceful chapel area on right at top of cathedral with comfortable kneelers so you can be in stillness at tabernacle. Sound of the bells is great. loved being in hotel so near this ancient cathedral

St Sauver isn't bright and shiny, but is it a gem none the less. The exterior does't prepare you for how large it appears inside. The baptistry is grand and the cloister is lovely! You can walk through the Cathedral on your own, but tours are available. It seems that the Cloister is open/closed at different times. Sometimes the first... More

Carm, wonderful proportions and beautiful. Just when you think of the time when buildings of this type were constructed you realise how much went into them!

A mishmash of architectural styles. Pleasant and peaceful. Go to the gardens/cloister. Very lovely and relaxing. Worth seeing.

Really a well preserved Cathedrale. The paintings are wonderful, the side chapel demonstrates many of the functions of the old church. The Mass was exceptional with the Bishop and several priests for the service. Choir, while small was excellent.

Though the cathedral itself has been repaired at so many time periods its architectural appeal has diminished, the cloister withing (which you need to make a special tour to see) was well worth the walk and an hours stay if you crave beauty, peace gardening & sculpture.

Built from the 12th to 16th centuries, this old cathedral of modest size lies on an inconspicuous street and posed a mixture of architectural styles probably because of the span of time it was built and expanded. One can see a section of ancient walls, Roman columns and an antiquated baptistery. Look at the details and appreciate the craftsmanship and... More

From the fifth century baptistery ther is a succession of architectural styles side by side in this interesting and ancient cathedral. Don't miss it!
