The cathedral in itself is just beautiful. You really should go in and visit it, for a few coins you can also climb the stairs to the top and have one of the most wonderful views of the city.

The church is very nice and well maintenance. Only a few minutes walk from metro station and you could see panoramic view of the city.

We did our own walking tour and made our way to the cathedral. Would have been better to join a tour and have someone give us history, but the beauty is enough. Great panoramic view of the city outside the cathedral.

I walked here. The walk is lovely walking up many steps. The streets are cobblestone and have great views of Lausanne. I was too late for the tower and it is only 5 francs. The church is lovely inside, and I enjoyed sitting in serenity.
