St Étienne Cathedral, Sens

Recommended
This is the first of France's big cathedrals (1130-1168). The west façade presents a statue of Saint Etienne, at the pier of the central doorway. The façade in the Flamboyant style at north transept is magnificent, built between 1503 and 513 by Martin Chambiges. Inside, the stained-glass windows are well worth studying at great detail (those of the right transept, offered by Tristan de Salazar, are by the Trojans workshops) and by the beautiful grilles which enclose the chancel.
