France has fine examples of churches and cathedrals established over many centuries. This one is very different and dominates the centre of the city. Interesting internal layout and shouldn’t be missed

Beautiful historic history inside, seen this on our way into Périgueux and was the first thing to see on our list! As beautiful as it is inside it’s also amazing outside, worth the visit.

A rare example of an understated bishopric relying on scale and simplicity to communicate the message of the greater glory.
