We climbed the left tower of the Cathedral and the view was beautiful. We could see all the little houses around and the other churches and little cathedrals. The full fare is 6€, and for young people (<26yo) is free. Then we visited the cathedral inside and we've seen lots of beautiful statues. But the most amazing part is the... More

We found this almost by chance as we looked for something to do on a Sunday afternoon. Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris or St Paul's Cathedral in London are often talked about and admired, yet they would have nothing on the sheer size of the cathedral in Amiens. The architecture is magnificent and we stood in awe of the architects... More

I visited the cathedral in December 2016 to watch the music, light projection on the facade and narrative about the history of the cathedral. It was one of the most magical experiences ever! During renovation of the facade it was discovered residues of the pigments used in the middle ages when all statues were colored. They recreated the whole facade... More

I thoroughly enjoyed visiting Amiens, that I took a friend along to revisit the sights. One of the main attractions of Amiens is the enormous Gothic Amiens is large enough to put in two (2) Notre Dame Paris cathedrals! You will not be disappointed with this Incredibly stunning cathedral ...inside and outside ... look for the cherub angels and the... More

We arrived on a Sunday and the town was fairly quiet initially but livened up as groups arrived to view the Cathedral. It is Grande and very gracious. Great Gothic example but did the air inside seemed a little dank.... I could feel a chill from inside that made me not wish to linger for too long....even thought it was... More

It's huge - a massive Gothic edifice that eclipses Notre Dame de Paris. It's also visually stunning both inside and out. The detailed carvings around the main doors are worthy of study in their own right (and some are downright peculiar, not to mention bloodthirsty!), even before you enter. It's hard to be specific about this place or I'd be... More

The largest gothic building in France by a long way, and apparently Notre Dame in Paris would fit inside Notre Dame in Amiens twice over with a litttle room to spare! There are some notices and explanations in English, which is helpful. Allow yourself at least two hours.

Didn't expect such a rich and detailed cathedral. It blew my mind away. Level of renovation is truly impressive. Could spend hours admiring the wealth and detail of this most amazing structure. Filled with importance, relics, memorials to the Great War, so very much worth the stop. Pile organ playing amazing music in the background... can't wait to return.

Magnificent Cathedral with superb acoustics and awe inspiring soaring arches and marble inlaid floor. Impressive inside and astonishing light display at night illuminating the exterior.
