You cannot fail to see this building as you towards Sees. We were 'drawn' into the town, parked easily and enjoyed strolling round. But the Cathedral is sadly neglected. Oh...it deserves to be in much better condition. Inside it's vast and cold and Sad.

Another masterpiece of Gothic architecture in Normandy. Especially a lot of stained-glass windows with variety of the patterns and colors. Lift up your eyes and will see stained-glass roses on both sides of the altar. Also high and beautiful stained-glass windows in central chapel of the Blessed Sacrament. Decorations of the nave and the choir also deserve attention.

This is worth a visit for the wow factor. The cathedral is huge and looks incredible. It's twin spires are huge and the building looks amazing. The surround town is also lovely with plenty of cafe to sit outside and admire the historic view

Visited the cathedral today, absolutely great. It stands tall and proud with its double spires and is a true hidden gem. Won't say any more, make up your own mind. The rest of the town is equally as beautiful the palace and gardens behind the cathedral are also well worth a visit. Still can't understand how such an enormous cathedral... More

I had visited this cathedrale many many years ago and as we were going to be passing through the region decided to visit again. As you travel along the A road the towering spires draw you in. We visited on Saturday morning so the market was in progress in the surrounding streets a small market compared with many. The Cathedrale... More

This imposing 13th Century cathedral really stands out in the village of Sees. The spires are 230 feet high. The interior is truly beautiful.

What fascinates me about Sees is that such a small town is blessed with such a superb cathedral. It may not quite match other cathedrals in France but on the several occasions we have visited at different times of the year, it has been virtually empty, which enhances its special atmosphere.

This Cathedral has one of the Holy Doors of this year of Mercy. Sunday Mass is at 11.00 am and the singing and the atmosphere was very spiritual. The Cathedral is well laid out and the sign-age is in both French and English. It is clearly a church with an active population and has a joyous feel to it.

We were on holiday here, and went to see if we could all get in to listen to the concert that was being performed in honour of the new bells which were going to be hung high up in the towers. I was in my fur lined bag on my Mum's shoulder, and the lady at the door said we... More

Sees is the quintessential French mini city. The cathedral is at the heart. Not spectacular, not huge, not very historic like say Chartres but perfect for an hours wander.
