It's quite an impressive cathedral. It is free to visit. The tram goes right past the cathedral. You also have a nice view of the cathedral from the main street.

We wandered in while the cathedral was being prepared for a weekend commemorating Joan of Arc. Special decorations, including beautiful flower arrangements, gave the sanctuary a special glow.

Mighty impressive cathedral. Worthwhile visiting. Many sculptures and statues and small side chapels. Information should be provided in English or German instead of only French.
