Beautiful cathedral. Take a look at the stained glass windows which tell complex stories from the Bible - original windows as intricate and as well-preserved are harder to come by than we realize. The organ in the back is atypical and worth looking at. If...More

A beautiful church inside and out. We weren't sure it was open to begin with but by going through the tiny door we were soon inside this overwhelming large cathedral. The stained glass windows stood out as the sun reflected towards the floor making beautiful...More

one can say it is one of those Notre Dames but in this Church the glass paintings were extraordinary - those were really beautiful and worth to see. Free entrance

Always amazing to see that small cities like Chalons have such a beautiful church: late romanic, early gothic church; the simple brick nature of the wall brings even more focus on the beautiful colorful windows.

There are three main churches in Chalons and this is certainly the most impressive. The architecture is typical of the area in impressive Gothic style. Well worth a visit if you can find your way in. We had to search for a small side door.

As often, the romanesque outshines the gothic, and this is the case here. The vaulted transepts are magnificent. this is a very good reason for passing through Chalons

I hadn't read up on this church before visiting--just wandered in and was amazed by its relatively low-key beauty. Neither spectacular nor spartan, it has many fine details that reward the visitor. I'd say this church is the most impressive tourist attraction in this town.

This was a lovely cathedral, but not quite as stunning as the Basilica Notre-Dame L'Épine or as immense as the Notre-Dame de Reims. The highlights are the medieval engravings on the floors and the long, narrow gallery. We were completely alone during our wander around.

Visited that lovely church while on a two night stop over. I actually wanted to see the Cathedral but that was closed. This was after all the better choice. What an impressive build, amazing how did they do it in those days. We also drove...More
