We spent a slightly wet afternoon exploring Saint-Lizier. All seemed closed down but we located the tourist office just outside the Cathedral which was open and we were given some useful information about the place. The 'Cathedral' is very small as has been mentioned and...More

The cathedral is an impressive sight, and the surrounding village and hilltop 'palace' make for an awesome day trip. There are also a couple of great picnic spots if the weather is nice.

Brilliant place, the view was breathtaking. Although walking up the hill was a bit tiring, I suggest that a walk is better than taking a vehicle up as there are many small shops to explore.
