Classified as a UNESCO Heritage site, this gothic cathedral is full of interesting bits: the weeping angel statue, history of the church/mankind display,the gospel told in stone "wall-book", the tiled labyrinth on the floor and most of all the sculptures on the facade. Extra bonus are the illuminations at 10pm (you may need to check times depending on the time... More

The city is not large and the tips of the cathedral can virtually be seen from anywhere within the city. This cathedral is well worth a visit with the highest tag of any cathedral in France. Built in the 1200,s this building is simply stunning with some of the nicest stain windows I have ever seen. It it simply huge... More

My wife and I enjoyed the light show at the Notre Dame Cathedral at Amiens at 10pm last night and never experienced anything like it anywhere in the world.

This is one very beautiful cathedral considering its age. You can almost image how it was built if you read the book "The Pillars of the earth" (although that was not in Amiens). The inside is worth a tour due to the may chapels and the winter chapel. It on the UNESCO Heritage site not for nothing.

A very nice large cathedral. 3 stars in Michelin guide. Inside is not exciting, outside is very impressive in a nice environment (a little park nearby, and a small water canal). The most exciting aspect of this cathedral is the nightly light and music show in the summer (and around christmas). Time varies by sunset. It is in the front... More
