Incredible to think think how this cathedral has been restored from the way it was bombed on D Day with an interesting selection of prewar relics. I could read the French literature but it is a shame it is not available in English

It was wonderful to see how the church was tastefully restored from the devastation of the bombings. Definitely worth a visit.

Having walked around the Ramparts it was a pleasant experience to enter the peace and tranquility inside the church. The sight of the mighty Bell was another reward as was the modern organ loft and pipes.

The church makes a very poignant reminder of the effects of war and how there are no winners only degrees of losing! It is interesting to see how the rebuilt west end has been constructed in a different stone so that the difference is obvious.
