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

Where can one start. Have lunch in Le Flore then walk down the street to the cathedral square. Your senses are hit by the enormity of this building it is just huge. The wonderfully preserved façade is beautifully ornate and awe inspiring. Enter the huge doors and you really wonder how the craftsmen actually constructed the building. It is just... More

This cathedral is a must-see, it is quite breath-taking to step inside. The photos just don't do it justice it is such a behemoth of a building, but so well constructed, and painstakingly crafted.

Beautiful place. Not sure if you have to pay or not to enter the knave or not but we paid around 15 euros to climb the steeple with a 10-yr-old which was very pleasant. The interior of the cathedral is beautiful, as one would expect. Despite the history, not sure I'd travel all the way to Amiens to visit (we... More

We visited Amiens on the way from Normandy to Reims. It was certainly a planned stop because who would miss such a perfect example of French Gothic architecture as Amiens Cathedral of Notre Dame? It surpassed my expectations by far: it is really hard to describe the ultimate beauty of the Cathedral's exterior: the most elaborate sculptures of the portal,... More
