Cathedral of St. Pierre

Interesting
Begun at the end of the 12C and nearly finished in the late 14C, when it was consecrated, theCathédrale de St-Pierre is astonishing in size. The tympan sculptures on the three doorways are delightful, and the architectural power of the interior spectacular. The 13C stalls are allegedly the oldest in France.
