The exterior of this church is charming. The interior was dark and gloomy. There were also patches of green mound that need sorting out. Overall, we thought this was the best attraction we visited in Nevers

This church has been built in about 30 years only, and has a great homogeneity of architecture. The church itself is situated inside the old city of Nevers. Simpler to discover by foot than by car. Outside, take time to look at all the gargoyles, there are at least twenty or thirty or different shapes, human faces or animals, real or mythical, and even one has the face of a cleric of that time (probably one the builders did not appreciate so much...). Inside, the church seems tall, unusually for a roman church. In fact there are three levels inside and it is more than 35 meters high. There is light coming through a lot of windows (some of them with stained glass). The fresh air and the silence are so good to make a pause and remove some stress from the modern life.

The outside of the cathedral has a smattering of buttresses, pillars and pinnacles and It's worth having a look around inside. There is a wide nave, a 16th century clock, a beautiful pipe organ, vaulted ceilings and a few crypts as well.
