We visited the amazing cathedral during a family service that lasted the better part of a day. The cathedral was vibrant with life and children were singing, faces were bright and there was an amazing atmosphere. Walking around the aisles admiring the church, it was obvious this was a cathedral loved by the people in the region. Its long and... More

This cathedral is twice as big as Cathedrale Notre-Dame de Paris. It is also the tallest one in France. A really exceptional building, in an excellent state of repair. Opening hours are 8:30 to 17:15, every day. 20 to 30 minutes are required to take it all in.

My husband and I have visited this cathedral on two separate trips. It is a very stunning and solemn place to be and is special to us both. We honestly prefer this Cathedrale Notre-Dame to the one in Paris. If you are in Amiens, this is a must see.

This is just a must see. The details and size is incredible. Read about it at tripadvisor or google it. Its four time as big as Notre-Dame. A visit inside is breath taking.

The light show is a must - not unlike the light shows all round the city of Chartres. The colour of the light show brings out all the detail. Make sure you read the detail and realise just how large it is ... How many Paris Notre Dame's would fit into it?!

An amazing Gothic cathedrale, which i will revisit on my own to appreciated exterior and interior only spent a limited amount of time viewing, just a short walk from town center in a pedestrian area, it's a pity about some of the new building close by, but look beyond those. but that was the view form our bedroom window.

If in Paris you probably need to visit Notre-Dame. Security is thorough so expect a queue to go into the cathedral, up to the top of the cathedral. The views from the top are spectacular and worth climbing so many stairs.

The cathederal is one of the highlights of the region, beautiful and breathtaking. Each evening there is a music and light show (free) where the exterior has colour and images projected onto the front facade. The usually white marble statues are made fully coloured and alive. Its amazing, lasts about an hour. Very effective and very well done.

This cathedral was constructed in the 1200s. Some of it has been repaired, reconstructed over time, but much of the original structure remains very much intact. It's one of the few examples in France of gothic design. The cathedral has been listed as a historic site by UNESCO. Worth a trip here to see it, and you can visit most... More
