If you are planning a visit to Amiens to see the cathedral illuminated at night, you might want to reconsider. As soon as the cathedral lights up, a platoon of demonstrators, uniformed as militants, files onto the square in front of the cathedral and stands with arms folded, and legs spread in an aggressive and immovable stance.

A wonderfully majestic cathedral - huge for a small place like Amiens. We were told it is larger than Notre Dame Paris, but it was hard to see this. For Australians, particularly interesting due to the memorials to our War Dead.

Beautiful town and an absolutely amazing cathedral. The mind boggles at the skill and patience that went into building this place. If you are close please, please visit you have to see this and not read about about it.....

Amazing place rivals notre dame in Paris full of history and so impressive inside and out. The stained glass windows are just beautiful and it is mind boggling how this huge building is still stand when you realise the technology wasn't around when it was built.

This is the biggest gothic cathedral in Europe and takes your breath away. We were lucky enough to attend a free organ recital which was so special. The lighting up of the cathedral every night is an absolute must.

One of the four great gothic churches of France - the others being Notre Dame Paris, Reims and Chartes. Splendid west front newly cleaned and admirable interior. Obviously the major attraction when coming to Amiens.
