Imposing building in central Auxerre close to the Abbey. Intricate tracery carving on the windows, delicate carvings around the doorway, it really is a stunning looking building.

Nice enough cathedral. More impressive from the outside than from the inside. Close to Auxerre central and a short walk to the abbey, clock tower and hotel de ville

We passed by Auxerre for a night and saw this cathedral. The artwork outside is incredible. On a plate outside it says Jana D'Ark had been there. More than 800years old
