There is the original 5th century chapel which is beautiful. The current main alter is adorned with modern sculptures. Worth a visit.

Not the most impressive appearing cathedral, but so historic and definitely worth a visit. Lots of interesting alcoves and beautiful art work. Great place to visit on a rainy or hot day.

Beautiful cathedral with stained glass, excellent statues and marvelous paintings. Parts which can be seen date back to the Romans in the 1st Century where you can see the tiles in the baptismal area

The imposing church with its origins dating back to the Roman days is a combination of three styles of architecture (Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque). It looks a bit eclectic to my taste and would not top the list of my favorite cathedrals in France, but it was very interesting to visit nonetheless. The stained glass windows shining on a bright...
