“Not to be missed!”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

One of our favorite churches we visited while in France. Really worth seeing! Be sure to walk around the outside completely to see the windows and brick work. Also, visit the chapels and crypt. This church is on the southern route of the Camino de Santiago and pilgrims come through to get their passport stamped.

“Worth stepping inside”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

This is a fascinating building with an interesting history. It is currently being renovated, but you can still see almost all of it.

“Fascinating History”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

After many visits the Cathedral never disappoints. The architecture is a wonder even if you do not like viewing churches and buildings this one is not to be missed, . The inside is just as fascinating- worth buying a guide book form the small kiosk at the back.

“Beautiful and atmospheric”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

The architecture is simple but oh so beautiful. We happened to be there on a Sunday morning and went to part of the religious service; it was lovely. There were tourists wandering around whilst the service was going on which was not a problem. The organ is magnificent, the sound made the hairs on the back of your neck stand up! Think Wido'rs Toccata played in a place with perfect acoustics, we must go to a concert there! On Sunday morning the Basilica was surrounded on all sides by market stalls, fascinating stuff, hubby bought a pair of good leather shoes for 5 euros! Don't miss this.
