There's no doubt that this cathedral is a stunning piece of architecture and dedication to all those who participated in building it. My only complaint with this and of the European cathedrals is that it breaks my heart that so many citizens we're so poor...More

The cathedrale is no longer a place of worship but was converted into a theater in l974. Bossuet was born in 1627 near the cathedral. The cathedral has a massive organ and striking architecture. There are also various art works on display inside the cathedral....More
