It is an impressive gothic cathedral, definitively a must do in Tours. During summer, they have a lights and sounds show each night at 10:30 pm, where they basically project a story on the cathedral. Worth seeing.

A beautiful example of the art with high vaults and excellent medieval stained glass along with some beautiful modern panels. Well worth a visit. There's also a cloister which costs 3.50euro entrance.

Don't miss this historic cathedral in Tours. We were in the area checking out the beautiful Loire valley and stumbled on it while walking around the city. The cathedral has stunning stained glass windows. There is also a light show offered on most summer evenings.

This is a very impressive cathedral. There is a mix of both modern and very old stained glass which compliment each other. This is rightly the highlight of any visit to Tours.

Beautiful Cathedral, the stain glass windows are amazing. Great city to visit, if you're in Tours make the Cathedral a priority. There is lots to see in this historical city so make sure you have a full day. The architecture is fantastic.
