Description

Between Romanesque and Gothic, regional differences.

Take a look at the cathedral’s west facade and prepare to be surprised by its grandeur. It has two towers and three portals, which are similar in layout to the portals of Bourges Cathedral. The mid-thirteenth-century sculpture is in the Gothic style common in northern France, whereas the architecture still bears the hallmarks of the Romanesque age, particularly the flat chevet.

Inside, the cathedral’s simplicity is enhanced by the many colourful stained glass windows.
