  • Arrive in the late afternoon on a sunny day to get the best light on the portals, in particular the Portal of the Virgin on the North side (not the main entrance). The cathedral is particular fine...

  • Beautiful church in a lovely village 20 mins from CDG airport
  • Huge gothic cathedral in the heart of a small town. There's no direct way from Paris to Senlis. It's common to take a train from Paris to Chantilly and then call Bolt or Uber to Senlis. (if you call them, they will come soon) I stopped by to see only this cathedral, and it was a pity that I had no time to look around this pretty village. The cathedral is built in a typical Gothic style and (maybe) is smaller than Paris Notre Dame or Amiens Cathedral, but it is enough to get a glimpse of the beauty of the Gothic Cathedral. There is a south side in front of the square and the entrance is there. Because of this, you can miss the facade, but if you turn to the left, you will see the beautiful tympan reliefs on the facade. The interior of the cathedral is grand and concise. The altitude is not very high, but it's majestic and godly. Keep in mind that you can enter the cathedral only before 6pm. 작은 마을의 중심부에 있는 거대한 고딕 대성당. 파리에서 상리스까지 바로 갈 수 있는 방법은 없는 걸로 알고 있다. 보통 파리에서 샹티이로 기차를 타고 간 뒤, Bolt나 Uber를 불러 상리스에 가는 방법이 일반적이다. (Bolt와 Uber는 꽤 많기때문에 호출하면 금방 온다) 나는 순전히 이 성당을 보기위해 잠깐 들렀었는데, 마을이 워낙 예뻐 더 둘러보지 못한게 아쉬움으로 남는다. 성당은 전형적인 고딕 양식으로 지어졌으며, 파리 노트르담이나 아미앵 성당보다는 규모가 작으나 고딕 대성당의 아름다움을 엿보기엔 충분하다. 성당 앞 광장에 서면 남쪽면이 보이며 입구도 그쪽에 있다. 이 때문에 facade를 놓칠 수 있는데, 왼쪽으로 돌아가면 facade의 아름다운 팀파늄 부조를 볼 수 있으니 꼭 살펴보시길 추천함. 성당 내부는 웅장하며 간결하다. 층고가 아주 높진 않지만, 충분히 장엄하고 경건한 분위기다. 아, 성당 안에 입장할 수 있는 시간이 정해져있으니 (아마도 오후 6시까지였던 듯) 염두에 두어야 한다. 장점) 고딕 대성당에 큰 관심이 있다면 한번 들를만 한 곳. 파리와는 다른 아담하고 조용한 분위기를 느낄 수 있음. 단점) 자가용이 없다면 파리에서 바로 가는 방법이 없음. 이 성당 외에 특별한 볼거리는 없는듯.
