Place Saint Pierre
Cathedral Saint-Pierre and Saint-Paul

The first stone was laid in 1434 – and with it one of the longest religious constructions in French history was underway (the building was only completed in 1891!). Behind the white stone, two-tower façade, the nave rises to a full 37.5 m (123 ft.) — higher than Notre-Dame de Paris.

Unfortunately, the July 2020 fire caused great damage, including the Grand organ, the choir, and the 15th-century stained glass windows. until renovation work returns the cathedrale to its former glory, the building will remain closed.

AN EXHIBITION IN THE SQUARE ALLOWS VISITORS TO DISCOVER THE CURRENT STATE OF RENOVATION WORK.
