This is a beautiful Cathedral with absolutely wonderful stained glass windows. The artefacts all around the interior are stunning. Don't, as we did, fall for giving money to a man who parks himself on the inside of one of the main entrance doors holding out...More

Over the last decade we visited this cathedral many times, fifth or sixth time? I lost count. Very beautiful stained glass windows, which cause nicely coloured spots of light which move through the space when time passes.

The history of this place is very compelling from a stopping point on the way to the hundred years war with Joan of Arc to the religious wars of the 16th century. Only part of this huge structure still remains after it's tumultuous history but...More

The present cathedral is a combination of two buildings, and possesses two apses. The apse and transept at the west end are the remains of a Romanesque church, while the nave and eastern apse are in the Gothic style and belong to the 14th century.

The first impression is the stained glass from the 1990's which fills it with colour. You then notice the very old statues and plaques and particularly the 11th century nave at one end and its unusual architecture. We were privileged to have an organist playing...More

With a little sight-seeing time at our disposal we headed for the cathedral nearby. It is large and impressive for the size of the town and right next to the equally impressive ducal palace. Inside you quickly realize from the modern stained glass Windows and...More

Nevers' cathedral is unique in that its stained glass windows are modern, having been commissioned in recent times to replace the historical windows that were destroyed when a WWII Allied bomb accidentally hit the cathedral. The old windows were not gothic stained glass but figured...More
