The present cathedral is a combination of two buildings, and possesses two apses. The apse and transept at the west end are the remains of a Romanesque church, while the nave and eastern apse are in the Gothic style and belong to the 14th century.

The first impression is the stained glass from the 1990's which fills it with colour. You then notice the very old statues and plaques and particularly the 11th century nave at one end and its unusual architecture. We were privileged to have an organist playing...More

In the heart of old town Nevers is this incredible cathedral dating back to , I believe, around 800, surviving fires, bombing, multiple reconstructions. Well worth a visit.

what once started as a roman cathedral, became an eclectic composition of roman and gothic, with an almost subdued transition between these. It is worth a visit, after you visited the palace, unless you don't like visiting churches

The cathedral is open to the public, you can freely walk around. Inside, they have several panels with information regarding the history. It is in a good state and worth a visit.

Some of the inside & out was cordoned off for repairs & maintenance, but it was still worth visiting. Typical of its type, many alcoves showed different views & scenes. Entry was free
