Very beautiful and large cathedral. We joined the tour into the cloister. The tour was in French and couldn't understand the well of information provided. The tour was supposed to be 20 minutes but the guide was very enthusiastic and it turned into 40 minutes.

On the occasion of our visit, most beautiful organ music was playing. This enhanced our wander around the interesting and elegant building. We were very fortunate and would love to visit again.

The day we visited the cathedral we were treated to an organ concerto!! Absolutely breath-taking!! Loved the beautiful architecture, paintings, wood carvings and most especially...the organ.

Well worth visiting as part of a wander round the old town. Historic importance with roman elements.

It was fascinating to hear about the history in this cathedral. The church is lovely, but the fact that it was built over centuries (I saw from the 5th to the 15th) makes it a history lesson in architecture. There were decapitations of the statues due to the French Revolution (although they tried to fix that and if you look... More

We went there for a concert at 15th august, all Maria classical songs (eg Ave Maria from Schubert, Goudonov, Piazzola. Perigolesi of course and Bach), performed by soprano and organ. That concert was indeed very worthwhile. After we looked around. The cathedral has parts that are restaured. Especially the main-altar area is amazing. However, some of the statues are very... More

Such a fascinating and worth while church to visit, having been built over 7 centuries - from the 12th to the 19th. As a result various architectural styles co-exist within. It was originally built on the site of a 1st century Roman forum. We visited just prior to a wedding taking place inside and enjoyed the 21st century usage as... More

Pretty much always open, as it should be, this place as always something down its sleeve to surprise you. So much to see and discover or just time for you...and slow down for a moment.

I'm not a huge fan of visiting religious worship places such as churches and cathedrals but this one is worth it. The cathedral is vast and presents a very wide span of arcitectural currents as it was built over several centuries. The once separate buildings (church, monastery) have grown together over tome and are now part of the complex. Had... More
