The Gothic style Cathedral is renowned for its three doorways with remarkable bas-reliefs. The stained glass windows in the choir and the apsidal chapel are among the finest in France. The 11th century crypt houses the remains of the former Romanesque cathedral. Start from the...More

Highly recommend a tour guide to walk you through this amazing cathedral...there's a lot to hear about. the carvings which tell the history of the Bible on the front facade are simply incredible.

While visiting Auxerre, this is one of the places you should visit. Didn't expect to find such a beautiful cathedral in the relatively small town of Auxerre.

This is a well above average cathedral for France; terrific stained glass and impressive high ceilings. Not quite five stars but close!

This cathedral was started in the 12th century. We only had a quick visit, but we were pleasantly surprised by the simple grandeur of the design..

Unexpected for the size of the city, this cathedral is massive . The high ceilings, the not too ornamental windows and the sheer size of the place sitting higher up on the hillside make it the most impressive sight in Auxerre.
