We went to hear the Gregorian chants on Sunday afternoon, but missed them and instead heard some beautiful organ music while we were there. It is a lovely old church and well worth a visit. I just wish we hadn't missed the chanting!

Very interesting cathedral built in different time periods which are still visible. We had the good fortune to hear the orangist practicing. The baptistery is beautiful. . . Roman columns!

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.
