Amiens Cathedral

Highly recommended
Classed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it illustrates the height of the Gothic by the homogeneity and boldness of its architecture: it is France's largest Gothic building, miraculously spared by wars. Note the exceptional stalls carved with 4 000 figures depicting both religious scenes and daily life. The cathedral also houses polychrome sculptures from the 15C and 16C portraying the Gospel and the Life of the Saints.
