The Gothic church is beautiful, but I would not travel from Paris just to see the cathedral. The architecture is same as the other churches thru out France.

This Cathedral was recommended by so many that it was a "must see" for me. A 15 minute walk from my hotel was well rewarded.

Beautiful and impressive old cathedral. Always very nice and calming to stroll around in a cathedral and to watch the impressive construction work and the ornaments.

I first discovered this cathedral in 2007 when I was studying in Tours. I have since moved to the city, so I walk past the cathedral almost every day. I am still in awe of its architecture and history. Being an American, we simply don't have this kind of architecture and history, so I try and enjoy it every day.

I will have to admit. I love church architecture, so I wanted to visit this cathedral when we had the chance. But then I saw it... A 1967 Shelby parked in front. I was sold. This had to be the most awesome church ever. It turned out that there was a wedding going on inside and the Mustang must have... More
