If you enjoy photographing historic buildings this worth a visit but I always find old churches and cathedrals damp and creepy and in the end I'm glad to get out for some fresh air.

We were the only people there early on Christmas Eve afternoon. The cathedral is really only the size of a biggish church but still has large amounts of original decoration on the ceilings and walls - beautiful paintings behind the main altar, contrasting with the amazingly Spanish style side chapels (all gold and glaring paintings). There is also a lovely... More

A quiet old building atop the hill that dominates this lovely old town. It is definitely worth a wander through but there is nothing that will knock your socks off.

We spent an afternoon exploring this hilltop village and the cathedral with its cloisters was one of the highlights. Don't miss the murals.

Very old and intriguing little cathedral. Crookedly build. Nice eye for detailed craftsmanship. There was a strange woman who shouted to us in French. Turned out she was inviting us to take a nice picture

While the cathedral itself was not particularly outstanding, the sense of quiet within is very moving, and the cloister is especially impressive, and is of personal interest as much of the stone used and found in this part of France also may be seen at the Cloisters in New York City. Very enjoyable.

Brilliant place, the view was breathtaking. Although walking up the hill was a bit tiring, I suggest that a walk is better than taking a vehicle up as there are many small shops to explore.

As Cathedrales go this one is old but not particularly outstanding. However the cloisters have a tranquil atmosphere with tombs dating back to the 15th century. The walled city is listed as amongst the most beautiful towns in France. It has some lovely features but you'll need a brochure from the tourist office to find and appreciate them. Of course...
