There are plenty of interesting buildings and mediaeval streets to explore in Annecy and this cathedral is perhaps not one of the less interesting ones. For a start, the interior is quite dark. Of course, if you are tired from a long walk around town...More

Cathedrale Saint Pierre is a nice church in the heart of Annecy. I suggest the visit to all the tourists in Annecy. It will be worthy.
