  • Marvellous. Thank you, Giselbertus, for the wonderful sculpture. You can see more of his work in the Musée Rolin.

  • Since being closed to do loads of renovations etc it was a treat to see the interior looking splendid
  • Stunning church - severe romanesque architecture without some of the excesses of later baroque additions that many cathedrals have 'suffered'. The timpanum over the west doors is worth the visit in itself.
