The remarkable thing about St Vincent Cathedral is that the spire can be seen from such a great distance; an excellent landmark whilst walking round the Old City as it helps to prevent you getting lost! Up close and outside it seems less imposing but...More

Not as impressive as many French cathedrals but on very restricted site and some interesting features - not least the way the east end falls away unusually thanks to the gradients of the site.

Amazingly quiet considering how busy the streets were outside. Beautiful stained glass windows. Worth seeing even if just to get away from the bustling street

This church is very quiet and charming in the real center of the town. It's like an oasis of religious relax and inviting to the prayer, just out of the crowded city center full of tourists. Very beautiful.

Every (okay, most) French towns have spectacular cathedrals and churches, so this is nothing special, but still really lovely. Worth popping in at least if you're in the old town.
