Œuvre de la cathédrale, Metz

4.5
The seat of the Bishop of Metz, Œuvre de la cathédrale is a historic Roman Catholic cathedral. Locals call it the Good Lord’s Lantern, perhaps in reference to its huge stained-glass windows. Constructed in Gothic style from yellow limestone, the cathedral dates back to the 12th century. Don't miss the spectacularly high nave, and seek out the Metz bishopric’s rich collection of items used during Holy Communion.
