One of the grandest I've seen in my life May 02, 2016
There's something fascinating about this Cathedral pretty much in every aspect.

The facade for one thing - it's huge with its transepts and chapels projecting out of the corners. As one enters, one can see statues of various saints, with one of them and the dragon Graoully by his feet. It's exceptionally long, nearly 125 metres long and 41 metres high. It also boasts of the largest single expanse of stained glass paintings in the world. Most of the stained glass paintings are from the 13th or 14th century. There's a crypt for which one has to pay, and I skipped it.

Overall, it's the single highlight of this town and I'd highly recommend a visit.
