Very peaceful and huge stained glass windows to marvel at. Must visit the Cedar of Lebanon planted in 1804 in the nearby Art Centre

This Cathedral is stunning, you have to see it for yourself. The organist was playing when we were there which really added to the atmosphere, I recommend it. Please note that there are no visitors allowed during service.

Especially the high, deep, intricately carved facade and the stained glass windows (the vast rose window above the west entrance particularly), which to my mind are reminiscent of the Sainte Chapelle in Paris.

The marble tomb of the children of Charles VIII and Anne of Brittany is wonderful too.

We visited the St. Gatien's cathedral in Tours on our recent trip to the Loire Valley. It's Gothic architecture is simply amazing. The facade is absolutely stunning piece of work.
There is a bike and car parking by the cathedral. It's a must if you are visiting Tours.

Tip: Do go to the next door creperie after your visit. It's crepes are as authentic as they get.
