A nice place to visit. Typical Gothic church. We actually witnessed a wedding in there at the time of our visit and it was very sweet.

Like all Provence churches and cathedrals, nice and simple and not impressive and overwhelming. Should not be avoided if in the neighborhood

We happen to be at the cathedral when a wedding was about to be preformed so got to hear some beautiful music and singing being preformed. What a unexpected treat!!!

I was truly awed by this unique cathedral. The cathedral soars to the heavens! I had missed this cathedral 10 years ago and we were thankful to my wife's sister for suggesting the visit after lunch.

Never ceases to amaze us how grand and large a building was constructed hundreds of years ago without the equipment we have today. A fantastic pipe organ which wad being played while we were there. Wonderful acoustics. Didn't bother with the tour as we had written info with us.

We learned that all the heads on the statues on the façade of the church had once been removed. They are now re-attached, but some without necks and some maybe not on the body originally intended.
