May I present - the tallest, most 'complete' Cathedral in France! May 15, 2017
The legend goes that the construction workers behind this palace were trying to reach for the sky (= heaven), and hence tried to maximise whatever space was provided. And that came to be the vast, spacious grand Cathedral!

About a km or so walk away from the main train station, it's well signposted and very easy to find. and well, if you lose direction, look towards the sky and you'll see its imposing spire.

There isn't a single thing about this Cathedral that hasn't been critically acclaimed - it's famed for its stained windows, the quality of the Gothic sculptures, etc. etc. There's a diagram at the entrance that also provides tourists points of interest around the nave and transept.

It's home to one of the most poignant sculptures in Christianity - the weeping angel. I also liked the story pictures, such as the one of St. John the Baptist.

In short, I'd highly highly recommend this Cathedral. Yes, it comes highly recommended but even if ti hadn't won or owned any of those records, I'd have still loved it regardless.
