As well as being incredibly large, this cathedral contains a number of interesting commemorations of various armies that participated in the liberation of Amiens from the Germans in 1918 which are worth seeing. Best of all is the illumination of the beautiful stonework of the front face of the edifice once it is dark. (I believe this only happens in... More

An incredible feat of ancient architecture is an understatement here. Just driving up to this Cathedral makes your jaw drop as to how it can be so big and still be standing after so many years. Highly recommend hiring a local tour guide to show you around as there is so many interesting statues, sculptures and secrets all with fascinating... More

Taking a train from Paris was easier than we thought. Plan to stay all day, great cafes near by and locals are so happy to see you! Short walk from train station and the cathedral will take your breath away. We truly loved Amiens .

We went here on our way to Villiers Britteneaux what a wonderful sight. I thought the Notre Dame in Paris was special but this place built in 1220 is awe inspiring. It is magnificent and the soldiers protected it in World War 1 so that it would not be destroyed ....and a little salient fact you can fit the Notre... More

This is one of the most inspiring cathedral's I have ever encounted. Form your first glance, it's size gets up & hits you. Upon entering one just can't believe the columns, the stained glass windows, the ceiling. Then there are the plaques that commerate the soldiers of the WW's. This is one outstanding building and well worth many hours sauntering... More
