An outstanding piece of architecture in the centre of Amiens. The light show which starts at 10.30 at night is truly amazing. The lights manage to put coloured images directly onto the statues and figures on the outside of the Cathederale which really brings it to life.

Approaching this cathedral in the daylight, you are stunned by the sheer scale of the thing. The interior is rather beautiful, but take time to examine the ornate carving around the entrance, then come back in the evening for the "spectacle". The 40-minute light show using goodness knows what technoloogy is set to a moving commentary with music (Gregorian chant... More

A fabulous Grand Cathedral in the town centre. Access to the upper clerestory and the outside areas whichh afford stunning views of the surrounding area. Allow up to two hours if you really wish to see everything in detail. Guided tours available.

A beautiful and peaceful cathedral. I'm not religious but there was a very definite spiritual feeling within. That may have something to do with the free entry and the lack of any gift shop, ubiquitous in the UK. It's large and surprisingly light inside and of lots of interest to those who have ancestors who fought in WW1

An amazing cathedral in Amiens. As impressive as Notre Dame in Paris. Surprisingly quiet. The stain glass and the sheer size of it is awe inspiring. Do not miss.

You can almost feel the presence of Quasimodo!! It's a must one for sure :) It is in the island from which Paris was born! It is in the center and it is worthwhile to go on foot!

Incredible carvings and history, possibly better than Paris Notre Dame . Being in a quiet town, no large waiting lines, view at your own leisure and enjoy seeing every small detail within the church . Dates back to early 1200
