An absolute gem of a place. It looks awesome on the outside and is even better inside. There are entrances at the front and on both sides. Currently there is a bit of renovation going on but it doesn't detract too much from the beautiful views. Afterwards you should check out the adjoining garden.
This cathedral is one of Unesco world heritage site. Dedicated to St.Etienne, it is a great masterpiece of gothic art and an engineering feat as well. The church has a simple and harmonious design, resembling Notre Dame Paris, with double flying butress. The flower garden surrounding it soften this stone building. The stained glasses are marvelous too. Don't miss it.
