It is indeed very big. It is quite empty though, but still interesting to visit, especially before visiting Basilique St Terese, thanks to which you can compare the size of “normal cathedral” to this huge basilique.

The entrance is via the town square , the sheer size of this old , tired , cold Cathedral is amazing. Entry is free but there is a donation box . There are some lovely large paintings and the explanations are in various languages.

The cathedral is very long, therefore big. Big portions are quite dark, but it looks like it was done on purpose since several religious statues are lit by spots, making them stand out. It's a nice play with lights. As cathedrals go, it's pretty drab,...More

Impressive cathedral. It is situated next to a park and the court. All are worth visiting. The cathedral itself is beautiful and well maintained.

Really impressive XII-XIII Cathedral. Thick columns, numerous arches, high and bright vaults give grandeur and historical greatness. Sometimes it's good to touch magnificent architecture and historical heritage and understand that such greatness was created by small human.

Situated next to the square and the gardens this beautiful cathedral is well worth a visit, in my opinion the inside is stunning! Follow the blue trail from here around Lisieux to see many other historic buildings and the gardens.

Beautiful cathedral, information available in lots of different languages. Information about all the artefacts inside in English. Easy to find, and right in the centre of Lisieux. No charge for entry, but a donation box just inside.

It's like walking into history. The places you of changed but the history is here to see. Here you can see 600year old doors and bricks that have moved in the same time frame. Love old chirches c and all they can show.

Dear all, I would like know if there is English mass celebrated at this Cathedral, or other churches nearby, Quite difficult to find their website for mass information. Very much appreciated.
