Cathedral

Recommended
This 12C monument illustrating Romanesque and Gothic styles has two square towers, an imposing façade and a huge porch. Thanks to restoration work in the 20C, it regained its medieval look. Inside, the simplicity of the nave contrasts with the ornamental extravagance of the chancel. In the nave, capitals decorated with biblical scenes show fabulous imaginary medieval creatures. The cathedral also boasts an exuberant Baroque pulpit, Gothic baptismal fonts as well as a superb modern stained-glass window on the east side of the chancel.
