This church was built on an ancient crypt and some if the tombs are very well preserved with beautiful reliefs on them. Within the basilica itself there is a small font with a carving of a small frog lurking at the bottom under the water.

We were in Toulouse in last Christmas and visited Narbounne after seeing Carcassion. We reached Carcassion on our Day 4 by train. We took 08-15am train and reached at Carcassion station at 9-25am. It was 70 mins journey from Toulouse Matabieu rail station and the fare was about £10 per head. After Medieval city visit, we came back to the... More

This is one of the great sights in all France. An exceptional cathedral, unfinished after hundreds of years and yet beautiful in all its parts both inside and out. A true miracle of the middle ages.

The size of the church at 40 meters high is amazing. The cloister is beautiful and the stained glass windows are fantastic. How anyone could build a church like this 800 years ago is hard to believe. We were lucky to hear the church organ too the Sunday afternoon that we visited here.

With less than a day in Narbonne we were unable to see everything. Thank goodness we didn't miss this. It has the most incredible sense of calm. If it was a choice between this and the main cathedral, which is beautiful and worth seeing, this would win hands down. And if you get the chance find someone to show you... More

A more striking, less-ornamented interior than most (later-era) gothic churches that I have visited in France... Definitely less popular than Saint-Just on the tourist circuit, but to me more unique, more historically compelling. The Sisters there are very warm...gracious. One of them was nice enough to explain "le conte de la grenouille" to me just before a church service started.

We walked crossing the channel in the other area of Narbonne, the other "ville" and we admired the hstorical buildings and the very well kept historical evidences in a very tranquil town. The Church is a magnificent sample of protogothic architecture with great impressive interiors. Cannot be missed visiting Narbonne despite the restoration is in progress.
