In short: 1. Steeped in history which is explained clearly in English, French and German throughout the church 2. An architect friend of mine could notice every intricate details and even for someone without great knowledge in field could appreciate the architecture 3. For the everyday tourist there is enough photo spots 4. The stained glasses which have been restored after the second world war are exceptional
This was on my tick list of things to do... don't asked. But i am so glad we did it. We arrived in town after a 10 hour drive but where not ready to stop. So l took the family into town as i was a aware that the cathedral gets lit up. WHAT A SHOW. I can not explain it, don't think big time but simple artistic pleasure. My 8 year old liked it and he can only describe it as colours. Just go and spend the 20-30 minutes... just to enjoy and stand and stare. I never thought blue as eerie.
I was only able to see the outside of the church but it was stunning with the Gothic architecture and the gargoyle all perched up on the sides. The details of the sculptures 0n the side doors is astonishing I hope one day to be able to see the inside of the place too.
This is one of the biggest and most detailed cathedrals that can be found anywhere. It is a shame that they never constructed the Bell tower spires which were planned but never funded. That would really have been something. It is free to enter and they put on a light show on the cathedral face at night which is really cool. Also you can get an 8 euro ticket to get a tour of the top of the cathedral, which is really cool. You want to book in advance since they only do one tour an hour with 19 person per tour. Great view from the top and informative information from the guide (in French).
One of my favorite places in Europe. Not too crowded. Free entry. Beautiful town. Real history.
