Beautiful Medieval cathedral in a charming medieval village. Striking architecture and stained glass windows. Climb the 100 steps to the top of the tower and view the town from up high.

Walked 3 children up the tower. Was a really good view from top. They all wanted to go further up right to the pinnacle.

A truly monumental gothic church which when fully restored will be still more impressive. Look out for the wonderful variety of stain glass windows, including one depicting scenes from the French Revolution. If you have the chance, it is worth the climb to the top...More
