Enjoyed this cathedral. Lovely location in a beautiful city. Beautiful architecture. Really enjoyed all the detail, the spires, the buttresses, the towers, the rosette window, the gothic interior with old astronomical clock and some bits of arabic influence. Wish I would have had time to climb the tower.

Right in the centre of town, on the recently built tram line,this is a great place to see both a beautiful medieval building but then to also take in the more sybaraitic sights of the city while enjoying a glass of Lillet the local aperitif.

This is a big and impressive cathedral with many flying buttresses outside - built when the roof started to collapse. At the moment it is being extensively cleaned outside. It was extremely cold inside and we were pleased that we weren't at a service! There are some beautifully painted columns inside which we don't remember seeing anywhere else. Also colourful... More

The Cathedral and Tour Pey Borland (bell tower) dominate Place Pey-Borland. The Cathedral has stunning stunning southern Gothic architecture with its Royal doorway built in the 13th century, its enormous organ and choir. The Cathedral is currently undergoing exterior restoration which by no means detracts from the photographic opportunities. We visited on a Sunday and there was a small market... More

A short walk from the main promenade, this is a giant building and you can see the top from most places in the city. from the inside it is like any European cathedral. for the outside you may have to find a position on the...
