“A Dark Ediface”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

A splendid Gothic structure of dark stone apparently from the lava used in its construction it occupies the high point of the city and visible from a long way away. Restoration works means not all is accessible but there are fine stained glass windows. And its free!

“What a dismal place!”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

Although there is plenty to see and it is obviously a great building, it does need a lot of TLC. The Notre Dame Du Port is a far more uplifting experience. There is plenty of beautiful stained glass and some wonderful paintings but it is too dark inside.

“Dramatic church”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Big impressive church which located on top of a hill (Depends on which side you arrive). The church was built from volcanic stones, which gives it's special black color. The church is built in both Roman and Gothic style. When i visited the church, someone played the organ, which made the atmosphere more dramatic. The entrance to the church is free, but climbing to the turrets costs 2 euros.

“Tranquillity”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Whilst visiting the Town of Clemont-Ferrand vibrant but in places olde worlde,. we took the opportunity to visit the Cathedrale Notre Dame - de - i'Assumption. Whilst the dark volcanic stone work of the exterior gives the bulding a gloomy appearance the feeling of peace and tranquillty inside are an experience to be valued. Inside one must be amazed at the hight of the structure. Leaflets are available in many lanagages.

“Beautiful Cathedral”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

Really like this Cathedral because it was made by volcanic rock and surround with old city.
The ambience of Clermont Ferrand can feel from here.
