This cathedral is worth a visit to Amiens. It's unlike any other I've seen in terms of its artistry. I came back a second day, and even my husband, who dislikes visiting monuments, was awed. Check it out online and see why we liked it so much

Well worth a visit to this cathedral. Beautiful inside. Lots of candles were lit when I visited. The stained glass windows are amazing. Only thing that spoilt it, was one beggar waiting at the door when you went in the front, and another waiting at the side entrance!! The architecture outside was very very impressive. One if the nicest cathedrals... More

Amiens cathedral is absolutely stunning both inside and out, but particularly the western front, probably the best carvings I have seen-and I've seen a few in my time! I was sorry not to have more access inside the cathedral, I would have liked to see the misericordes in the choir area. I had the feeling of being rather excluded from... More

Not much more to say. I actually prefer it from the outside at night. But it is notre dame and it is paris so crowding is to bad expected

The western front of this cathedral is magnificent - beautiful stone, fantastically carved. We did not even see it with the afternoon sun on it when I imagine it is even better. The rest of the cathedral is fine enough, but the facade is truly awe inspiring.

The light show was well worth handing around for. Laser lights depicting what the facade would have originally looked like

A short train trip north of Paris lies the beautiful town of Amiens. Each evening, just after sunset, the Cathedral caretakers host a spectacular light show. Literally hundreds of statues of the saints that adorn the façade are lit up with stencils the colors of the original paint that was on the statues. The look is fascinating and reminds you... More
