In line with the style of the famous French cathedrals. It's the most beautiful in town, in my opinion. It deserves a visit.

From all different angles, this is a towering cathedral slightly up the hill from the chateau. We were not able to get in but walked around the perimeter. Well lit at night.

The beautiful cathedral is very bright inside, which differentiates her from others. It's also great to take photo from the outside and leaded glass.

This cathedral has been redone on the last 70 years twice. Once after WW II due to bombing & Gain after a fire on 1972. Deep history exists in this lovely cathedral.
