We’ve seen many churches and cathedrals in France but this one in Agen really is special. Beautifully painted interior and a long history - do make time to see.

Good for a five minute stop if you're in the area. Looks nice on the outside and beautiful on the inside.

Nice peaceful place, not wildly interesting but some nice paintings and stain glass windows. Can be done in 10 min.

It was a quiet afternoon. We were just the two of us for almost 20 minutes before another couple arrived. The stained glass windows are beautiful. The cathedral allows meditation and quiet moments for reflection.

Although fairly plain on the outside, the interior takes your breath away, with every wall & the ceiling sumptuously painted & gold leaf everywhere. A real gem!

An outstanding rare example of a well preserved 12th century church with beautifully painted frescoes, walls, colums and celing. Declared as a UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE.

Situated in a quiet square at the end of the old town is this lovely peaceful cathédrale. After the bustle of the indoor market, bars and shops, it offers a quiet retreat in lovely surroundings to contemplate and reflect. Just lovely.

Thank ChefCliveM
