If you are into old architecture, stain glass and religious art this is the place for you. The scale of the building and the cavernous interior are awesome. It certainly ticked all my boxes. I absolutely loved it.

This was a good place to visit. I must admit that we were just walking past and decided to go in. It is a massive cathedral, which is always cool. In particular, this one has an amazing three dimensional sculpture behind the alter.

This is a beautiful church, especially the exterior but compared to the Jacobins the inside is cluttered, crowded with tourists and students and just noisy. Definitely worth a visit but try to visit the Jacobins as well and you will see the interesting contrast.

Beautiful building with a lot of original Romanesque sculpture. If you like the art of the French Middle Ages this is for you.

Great Building on a massive scale with added curiosities like a little door next to the font, a whole load of relics an a gentle scent of incense.
