Impressive building combining both gothic and southern styles of architecture. Entry is free and the interior is worth a look.

A fine example of gothic architecture with impressive stained glass windows commanding the church below. Saint-Etienne is quite ornate and sumptuous as an edifice and makes the visitor divide his time between admiring the structural architecture and then the baroque opulence of the interior. A...More

From one side you think, oh dear, did they mix up two building plans as it seems that half an old church has been restored with modern brickwork. Inside however it really is clear and bright and you would think you were in a differnt...More

a towering masterpiece of marble awaits in this ancient edifice. Ideally, grab a hymn book if you are attending mass as they really encourage the congregation to sing (as opposed to an elite choir, on my visit)

This cathedral has an interesting exterior design, as well as an attractive interior. It is worthwhile to walk around the outside of the building before venturing inside. Also, once inside, walk around behind the altar, as there are several small chapels set in alcoves.
