With care, one can see the history of the Medieval and late Middle Ages in the cathedral. Its design changes from the nave to the sanctuary and the austere facade is testament to the cathedral's place in a fortified town. While amusingly inconsistent, all the...More

A walk in the old town past the cathedral, shops and restaurants. The cathedral dates back to the 13c and is well preserved with lots of interesting artefacts.

Nice big little cathedral in a little medieval city. Lots of history with a well-attended service. Special highlight: Thursday evening organ concerts with an excellent organist playing baroque music on a decent organ. Worth the detour!

Charming centrally located cathedral. It provides an excellent landmark for exploring the village as well as a photo point when hiking the nearby footpaths.

This 15C cathedral is well worth a look inside. It is light filled with an impressive vaulted ceiling. On the day we visited there was a gospel choir providing free entertainment. We enjoyed hearing 'sweet chariot' with a French accent.

Lovely cathedral in the centre of town. Free to enter and wander around, beautiful inside and out. Nice to see the references to the pilgrims on the St Jacques pilgrimage, many of whom were walking through the town.
