This is a lovely Cathedral and well worth visiting just to marvel at the wonderful architecture and enjoy the tranquillity after the bustle of the busy streets.

Well kept. Nice to see. A step away from the crowds. Nothing to do with the church but there is a pay restroom nearby (north) that they say is cleaned after each use. (I would hate to see what the guy before us did if that was cleaned.)

A somber interior, great for some quiet reflection. Stained glass was medieval at the west end and modern at the east end, which suggested some second world war damage. When you leave do not miss the nearby war memorial and the garden and statue commemorating the resistance. These people helped create the peace we enjoy.

Making one's way past the harbor - a busy ferry port to England's Channel Islands and England's southern ports, upon entering the old-city and making one's way up the hill to the surrounding walls of the city the views are stunning. We happened to visit on a lovely/clear day and - with the tide out, the beach was strewn with... More

Beautiful both outside and inside! Inside had the most beautiful stained glass windows! You can buy a candle and I did, thinking of my grandmother who has passed away. Worth a visit!

A pleasant visit to an interesting old cathedral. The internal pillars are enormous, possibly to support the additional side aisles. It is approached from a very quiet square with very little in the way of bars or restaurants. There are some very expensive art shops around the square

We went in to get out of the rain, but stayed long after the sun had broken through. Like the whole city, the Cathedral has been knocked about, starting with the Revolution, and culminating in the bombing and artillery of WW2. The glass which survived has been restored and accompanied by new replacements, in a dignified and beautiful manner. An... More

I think the history of this part of France is interesting, and the beach/ramparts/historic area are a nice place to visit for a day.
