This cathedral is filled with some wonderful art, sculptures and architectural styles!! They have a Roman style nave, a Merovingian baptistery and a gothic area of the building. Things that some date back to the 5th century! Wow that's old!! They have some beautiful sculptures of people out of the bible and some sculptures serve a propose other than looking wonderful. One is an alter like structure with a carved relief of Christ with the 12 men he choose , the apostles ! There's wonderfully hand carved doors and window covers as well.
They will let you photograph but I recommend not using a flash because of the damage that can be done to the paintings. To do this open your shutter or use a mode to adjust the lens opening. Many cameras now days come with that feature. You may need to play with exposures at home on your camera before going over to Provence to take these photos. Try taking pictures in a dim lighted area. Try different exposures to see which ones work well or not at all. Also go to the dealer where you bought your camera and ask for advice on taking such pictures. It's worth the practice and it gets you ready to meet the challenges that you'll run run across to photograph Europe!! And there will be many!
You'll love the beauty of this cathedral and all it has to offer! You art and history buffs out there will have a great time along with those that like architecture. Something for everyone. It's a charm of a church.
