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

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 .
