Cathedrale St-Lazare reviews
Fantastic Cathedral- it has just had a full renovation- interior and exterior- to a high standard- the stone work is very interesting and the stone carving above the main entrance is fabulous... more »
Marvellous. Thank you, Giselbertus, for the wonderful sculpture. You can see more of his work in the Musée Rolin. more »
Worthy trip to this town. The interior is undergoing major rennovations so only back portion open to public. continue behind and up street to right to a local pottery maker who is in her eighties and been crafting since the 50s.
The cathedral is being restored so 90% is closed. Tourist information failed to mention this so we walked up there basically for nothing. What is accessible is beautiful.
