There are three main churches in Chalons and this is certainly the most impressive. The architecture is typical of the area in impressive Gothic style. Well worth a visit if you can find your way in. We had to search for a small side door.
As often, the romanesque outshines the gothic, and this is the case here. The vaulted transepts are magnificent. this is a very good reason for passing through Chalons
I hadn't read up on this church before visiting--just wandered in and was amazed by its relatively low-key beauty. Neither spectacular nor spartan, it has many fine details that reward the visitor. I'd say this church is the most impressive tourist attraction in this town.
This was a lovely cathedral, but not quite as stunning as the Basilica Notre-Dame L'Épine or as immense as the Notre-Dame de Reims. The highlights are the medieval engravings on the floors and the long, narrow gallery. We were completely alone during our wander around.

Remarkable, historical and worth a visit. Active church and also strong cultural calendar of musical events,. Architectural jewel.

We went in just after it opened, and offered a credit card... 更多
We enjoyed a short stop at this old cathedral. It's near central city, so worth a brief look. Check out the stained glass which is specially beautiful.
