We stayed at Amiens while doing a tour of the battlefields. The Cathedral dates back to the 13th century and is well worth a visit.

A huge cathedral in the centre of Amiens full of amazing sculptures and paintings....according to my fiancée its twice the size of Westminster abbey. We were lucky enough to see the amazing festival des illumination which sees the cathedral lit up of a night time for about an hour.

The cathedral is simply amazing. It is well preserved and is very reminiscent of it's brother in Paris, Notre Dame. The self-guided tour is well laid out and there are so many small details to see it is advised you take your time as you make your way through.

This is a Cathedral worth visiting aside from a tour of Villers-Bretteneux, with wonderful stories and such amazing architecture. Stay and listen to the bells, especially on Sunday.

A beautiful cathedral! Definitely worth a look around if visiting Amiens. We also visited beauvais cathedral and this was by far the prettiest.

Amazing cathedral, 1,000 years of history right in the middle of town. Check out light show after 23:00.

Very large Cathederal with lots of ornate carvings inside and out. Very high ceilings. It puts on a spectacular light show if you can wait until well after 10pm in the summer for when it's dark.

Unlike many cathedrals of the Gothic period, Notre-Dame d'Amiens took a (relatively) very short time to be built (some 60 years) so it is remarkably homogeneous in its architecture. Its intricate decorative sculptures on the outside, its soaring proportions inside and the beautifully intricate carvings in the choir, as well as the elegance of its chapels make it one of... More

Lovely as far as churches go. Architecturally outstanding, and free entrance, would recommend to anyone who likes churches or buildings.

Inspiring. You appreciate it far more from the inside with the sun shining in from above on a cold spring morning.
