this is well worth a visit, it has it all. Massive original doors, flying buttresses , stained glass windows just amazing - we were luck to visit in November with the sun streaming through the South side windows see photo

A hidden gem with great architecture, magnificent stained glass windows and one of the biggest pipe organs I’ve seen. Walking through non-descript back streets, to suddenly come across this sight was quite a shock. It is definitely worth looking for and spending some quiet time...More

Doing nearly 2000 miles around France we saw quite a few Cathedrals and Churches and this was one of the best. Excellent glass, great architeture and history, a must-see if you are near.

A beautiful building, sense of peace and we were so lucky to be there for a children's Mass. The children playing musical instruments and the organist were all magnificent!

beautifull building that could be even nicer with a light Show but this one is more a technical Show off than an artistical one. more spirit would be needed.

Gorgeous. A testament to area builders from 1100 to 1512. This is a historic piece of art work the windows are particularly magnificent. If you aren't a believer now spend s 1/2 here

It is an impressive gothic cathedral, definitively a must do in Tours. During summer, they have a lights and sounds show each night at 10:30 pm, where they basically project a story on the cathedral. Worth seeing.

A beautiful example of the art with high vaults and excellent medieval stained glass along with some beautiful modern panels. Well worth a visit. There's also a cloister which costs 3.50euro entrance.

I've seen churches and cathedrals all over Western Europe and this one ranks right up there among the very best. We were there at 1000-1030 and the light streaming in through the stained glass added a whole other dimension to the visit. This is well...More
