“Amazing building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

Even if you don't like ecclesiastical buildings you will be impressed by the sheer scale of the building. Beautiful stone work, a great set of bells and an amazing clock (inside). Miracles for sale inside too, no minimum price.

The cathedral is an arcitectual joy and an oasis of spiritual calm. I would encourage visitors to view the beautiful stain glass.

Read the messages from grateful people who believe they were granted miracles here. See the Rubens painting and the astronomical clock below which Louis XIV walked. Lovely place to think.

“Lovely cathedral”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

An interesting cathedral as it does not appear to be heavily reworked, so fairly authentic. Nothing much in the way of stained glass but huge organ.

“Saint Omer centre and surrounding area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

A lovely middle ages town full of quaint buildings and a big church.It was easily accessed on foot from the Etap Hotel which in my opinion is the best Etap I have ever been in.
Lots of shops and eating places.
In the surrounding area ithere is Tatinghem where there are lots of very old original farmhouses/buildings whivh look as though they have never been touched for hundreds of years.There is even a fantastic old windmill.
You have Wisques and Lumbres and so many more like places.
This is a very nice overnight stop for holidaymakers driving from the North of England.Just far enough and one foot in France ready for takeoff next day towards the South or whereever.
I will actually go and spend a weekend there during the coming year if only to stock up on the wine.
