One of France's finest! May 17, 2017
Enough good things cannot be said about this Cathedral. It's an easy walk from the train station, and - it's the only reason tourists visit this town.

Towering the town's skyline, this Cathedral has, time and again, won several accolades and is often called the best preserved and one of the prettiest churches of France.

To me, and I'm not even such a big fan come to think of it, the highlights were the beautifully stained windows. They face in all 3 directions, the most famous being the blue stained one of the Virgin Mother.

Another highlight is the infamous labyrinth tiling - we saw several standing at the epicentre and praying.

All in all, worth visiting. Another example of how grand French cathedrals are!
