Awe-inspiring building with fascinating sculptures and carvings. Only slight disappointment was that the relic of the head of John the Baptist cannot be displayed during the winter months due to the damp conditions. But still well worth the visit.

The carved wooden choir stalls are works of art. Make sure to find the angel made famous in WWI postcards and take a close look at the numerous statues above the entrance.

There is seriously nothing to dislike about this cathedral....the artwork is fantastic with carved street scenes from centuries ago! Make sure you get the audio guide from the Office de Tourisme which is next to the cathedral, and to help...the numbers for the listening areas go anti-clockwise from the front entrance

I have seen most cathedrals in Europe - Notre Dame in Paris, the Dom in Cologne, that in Vienna, St Paul's and many more English cathedrals, the French churches/cathedrals in Reims, Metz, Chartres, Strasbourg, Lyon (?) & even Poitiers. Of course the Sagrada Familia and others in Spain, Austria, Belgium, Italy etc. But this one is so special! They are... More

A monument to visit ABSOLUTELY !! Do not forget the magnificent stalls, the stained glasses and the maze on the marble floor which could lead children from hell to paradise..

A visit to the cathedral is a must when near Amiens. One of the most beautiful and picturesque of all the cathedrals.

Amazing Church, just as good as it's namesake in Paris, also lucky enough to see the light show provided one warm September evening.

This is the biggest cathedral of its kind in France, slightly bigger than the Notre Dame in Paris. It's not the bigger aspect that I liked Notre Dame; when they're that big I can't really tell anyway, but what I did notice was the lack of crowds. We had time to really enjoy it and look around without hundreds of... More

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
