This is a lovely Gothic church to wander around for a short visit. Light a candle, admire the stained glass, and check out the interesting gargoyles outside the church. I love the flying buttresses, and the beautiful stone work.

This church has incredible array of gargoyles on its exterior. It's worth the visit just for these. Don't miss it.

Go inside and experience the splendor of high Gothic. A place steeped in history too. Fun on a rainy day to see the water coming out of the mouths of the gargoyles

Absolutely stunning exterior and interior! So beautiful and peaceful. It was really complimented by the beautiful old city surrounding.

Well worth a visit. A beautiful peaceful place. Lots of things to see and discover. I spent 15 mins in the pews just absorbing the place. It's beautiful. Go!

The history of this Basilica is really tied up with the town. Read the general information about Pope Ubain IV outside as he founded this church and oversaw the design which is beautiful. Lovely flying buttresses and lace stone work. A must see. Information in...More
