After weeks of very hot weather we arrived here as the rain came pouring down. Regardless of the weather the cathedral is incredible and we couldn't wait for the illuminations in the evening. Inside it is a masterpiece structure and it is surrounded by a great selection of bars and restaurants.

Few people know this fact. The cathedral of Amiens is much bigger than Notre Dame de Paris and some other really big cathedrals in France. It is rated even 23-th in the world. If you are lucky, you can catch a light show which is projected over its facade. The surrounding old neighborhood is also worth seeing. And don't miss... More

Huge expanse which has been beautifully cleaned and restored for its upcoming anniversary. The stone carving of the portals and the internal screens is incredible. In December there were surprisingly few visitors. But bundle up, it's very very cold inside!

There are not many cathedrals that can compare to Amiens. The artwork, especially the painted sculptures depicting the lives of a number of saints surrounding the main alter area, is simply brilliant. I especially liked the sculpted scene of a saint being martyred (in the process of being beheaded) by a man (wearing very colourful stripey trousers) with a large... More

A wonderful setting in a large pedestrian square, the cathedral is imposing. Allow yourself time to wander within the cathedral and read the various plaques, which explain the artifacts along with historical importance. It is far larger than Notre Dame in Paris and was protected during the World Wars for fear of destruction.

The cathedral is very tall and graceful in an ornate way. The stained glass is striking and the outside is typical of french churches-but bigger!

If you like gothic & you like big you'll love this. It's enormous, visited as it is a UNESCO World Heritage sight & rightly so.

Love Cathedrals, especially in this gothic style. France has many magnificent ones, but this must be one of the best.
