Quite large actually, and amazing architecture. The place is awe inspiring. The intricate carvings on the outside, and the beauty of the interior make this a place to admire.

We are not Catholic but have been to mass a couple of times to experience this magnificent place of worship and to enjoy the organ. A must to visit when in Amiens.

The cathedrale of Amiens is an impressive building! Bigger than Notre-Dame de Paris! The colours of the facade at the sunset are just amazing!

Is it possible to climb to the top of the cathedral? If so, is there a cost?

There is a tour that takes you up there and you need to check with the ticket office and shop to the immediate left of the Cathedral. Google Amiens cathedral Tours for more. Don't miss it.
It seems like a little far away from Paris, is there a some day tour from Paris?
