“Under Restoration !!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

We had seen this wonderful church at a distance many years ago - and were so looking forward to properly exploring it on this visit. We made a special time to see it - and it is TOTALLY covered in scaffolding and protective fabric. There seems to be some roofing problems apparently, but the notice outside in French did not seem to say for how long. We were there on a Sunday morning, and the Mass service was being conducted in the garden in front of the cathedral. You would need to check with the Tourist office I imagine, to see whether it is finished - should you wish to pay a visit.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

It took us awhile to walk to the cathedral only to be disappointed to learn that it was closed for renovation.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

Arrived and initially able to enjoy the beauty and atmosphere. Pleased to respect the request for quiet and appreciated the opportunity to enjoy the ornate decoration. However, I was soon ashamed to be British when a coach load of noisy people seemed unable not to chatter and complain about the admission charge.

“Closed July 2014”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

Very disappointing there was scaffolding around the whole building and this was then clad in tarpaulin so we did not even get to see the outside of the building and the gates were locked.

“Dont go”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

This wonderful cathedral is worth a visit but not at the moment where it is covered in scaffolding and tarpaulin. It is largely also not possible to go inside the building. On a hot day it would be a shame to trudge all the way there, only to be disappointed, like we were.
