“Cathedrale St-Etienne”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

Interesting church near Rue de Metz. It has a lovely rose window and magnificent organ. The architecture is haphazard as the church was built over several centuries.

Very very interesting facade and interior due to different materials and architectural styles used. Well worth a visit in my opinion.

“Cathedrale St Etienne”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

Such an interesting, magnificent and sad cathedral, all in one. Never finished, this could have been one of the most magnificent cathedrals in all of Europe - even the world. The carvings are stupendous. Artwork is well worth the visit. Gargoyles spot the brickwork outside. We happened upon this one by chance, and are happy we decided to go inside.

“Make sure to inspect all the hand-painted detail”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

While for us the Cathedral played second fiddle to the Basilica, it's still an outstanding architectural work and well worth your time. Make sure to tour all around the apse and inspect all the hand-painted pattern work, some of which has obviously been marred by floods. There is so much rich detail here (particularly all around the Stations of the Cross) that you will gladly spend a half-hour or more here.
