Description

The precursor of the Angevin Gothic style.

Work on the cathedral of St Maurice, started in the middle of the 12th century and was finalised around 1250. It is the first building showing characteristics of the Angevin Gothic style: ribbed domed vaults, at first quite solid in the nave and then giving way to fine ribs in the transept and the chancel.

The cathedral also provides visitors with the opportunity to admire a beautiful array of stained-glass windows from the 12th, 13th and 15th centuries.
