Most beautiful building and there is always something on around in the area.
So stunningly beautiful! Even though I did not get in, just the view from outside looks amazing and just in the middle of the city.
Enjoyed the colourful walls and columns here. Didn't see much information about the cathedral itself.
Needs restoration on inside. And hardly any information found on: history & construction &/or what to see in Cathedral. For example: a fresco and more... Learned back home by coincidence through reading about Chartres labyrinth, there is one too in Mirepoix.... Situated floor side chapel within cathedral. Size 60 cm, 11 circuit with Minotaur at the centre. C. 1530
