What a stunning gothic cathedral that served as a breathtaking backdrop to the Christmas market. The stained glass windows are something to behold!

This is a stunningly beautiful cathedral. The vastness of the nave and the stained glass are awe inspiring. We went to Sunday mass here and even though we didn’t understand the French, the setting reinforces the awe, wonder, and majesty of our faith. This is a must see for the believer and also those who don’t. Very beautiful.

Couldn't stop saying Wow! Such detail and ornate workings, then go inside to be blown away by the stained glass. Must go inside when in Metz.

Nearby university and waterways are better places to spend your time. Stained glasses are a feature here.

We visited Metz in May 2019 during our research for our upcoming book "Flavour with Benefits: France".

The cathedral has a beautiful and peaceful ambience. The light from the stained glass is soft and calming and everywhere! Some of the windows have been created by famous artists such as Marc Chagall.

In addition, the Gregorian chant was first created in Metz in the 8th century.

Right across from the Cathedral is the wonderful Covered Market.

Wonderful trip to Metz!

A must in this lovely city.
Takes your breath away, the stone glows gold on the outside, intricate carved gargoyles on the entrance.

Glorious, especially during Christmas. A beautiful cathedral well worth a visit. The lacey golden spires crown the cathedral and the surrounding countryside, like a painting come to life..
