The history of this place is very compelling from a stopping point on the way to the hundred years war with Joan of Arc to the religious wars of the 16th century. Only part of this huge structure still remains after it's tumultuous history but...More

The present cathedral is a combination of two buildings, and possesses two apses. The apse and transept at the west end are the remains of a Romanesque church, while the nave and eastern apse are in the Gothic style and belong to the 14th century.

In the heart of old town Nevers is this incredible cathedral dating back to , I believe, around 800, surviving fires, bombing, multiple reconstructions. Well worth a visit.

The cathedral is situated right next to the palace. Due to various restorations the church has a rather eclectic mix of style but it seems to work quite well. There are so many gargoyles on the outside.
