This was very impressive both inside and out. IT is quite large and sometimes hard to fathom how it was built. Take your time to really walk around and take it all in--it is worth it.

We were not disappointed with this cathedral, use the audioguides to get the history and allow plenty of time, we were a little rushed with prior commitments.

We went to this imposing cathedral and were impressed with the size and grandeur of the building. There were some interesting mediaeval dioramas which depicted the life of St. John the Baptist and other saints. I would recommend a visit if you're in this pleasant provincial town.

Very impressive church, with a lot of details, both inside and outside. Would for sure deserve 1 hour of visit, and just enjoy the peace inside...

We were very happy to have taken the time to see this magnificent cathedral, and that we toured it with the audio guides provided through the TI office. We loved the light, airy quality of the cathedral. The guides really helped us appreciate particular features throughout the building.

How did they build it? Craftsmanship amazing. Attended a church service (not a mass) where the Amiens African community was welcomed.

One of France's greatest gothic cathedrals, should be on everyone's 'must see' list. The rest of the city suffered in 1870, as well as in both World Wars. Have lunch at the Orfevres restaurant 100 metres away in rue des Orfevres.

Impressive cathedral with the architecture that cannot be described in words. Recommend to take a audio guide or a guided tour(only in French) to understand lot of things such as the size & symmetry of pillars, facade, painted interiors etc., makes ur visit complete.
