  • Nice high ceilings and nicely detailed stained glass. Regretfully the crypt had been closed for two years and would be for two more due to renovations. The tourist office had specifically mentioned it as worthwhile. Staff was helpful and kind. We liked the fact that the church didn't overly depict Jesus's suffering, but offered space for contemplation.
  • Another of the great gothic cathedrals of France, this one having one of the distinctive patterned tile roofs typical of Burgundian major buildings. Not as impressive as the cathedrals of northern France, but certainly worth visiting in this lovely city
