Our Lady of the Town Cathedral

Interesting
Built between 1200 and 1330, it has an elegant doorway, guarded by debonair lions. Inside are fragments of mural paintings from the 15 and 16C and stained-glass windows made of blown, tinted glass whose colours change depending on where you stand. They were created by a Canadian artist, Daniel Rabinowitch, who was also responsible for the copper incrustations in the floor of the nave, symbolising the divine word, from Hebrew to French.
