Cathédrale St-Sauveur

Interesting
This Cathedral is a must. It demonstrates a variety of architectural styles - a Roman provincial portal, a Gothic bell-tower and some vaults sculpted by Jean Guiramand... If possible visit on a Tuesday between 3.00 and 4.00pm - only then can you see the wonderful Triptych of the burning bush -attributed to Nicolas Froment after having been to see King René himself... The king was happy to be one of his characters, accompanied by his second wife, Queen Jeanne.
