This is a beautiful cathedral and if you are local I think it is worth the stop. I went with my husband and two children and we all enjoyed our time here

Absolutely stunning tympanum above the entrance of the Cathedral. It's worth having a really good look at it.

What a historical cathedral on the pilgrims route from Vezelay to Santiago de Compestela, Spain. Amazing front entrance and carvings inside.
