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

A stunning cathedral with a very high roof and beautiful stained glass windows! During our visit there was a lady practicing the flute and the music just made it a magical experience and a memory we will cherish forever. One of our favorites.
