Notre Dame Cathedral, Le Puy-en-Velay

Highly recommended
A Unesco World Heritage Site, this marvellous Romanesque-style building owes its originality to the influence of the East: inside, the nave is covered by a series of domes. The cathedral is an exceptional place, appearing to defy the laws of gravity by balancing the steep spot, and for its colourful lava façades, the Porche du For and the Porche St Jean, its Romanesque frescoes (Holy Women at the Tomb, The Martyrdom of St Catherine of Alexandria), the mysterious Pierre des Fièvres and the treasure.
