Cathedral Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Begun in 1056, this cathedral is renowned for its elegant proportions, purity of design and profusion of ascending lines, culminating in 78m-high spires. The bold turreted lantern tower, noted for its slender ribbing, stands at a height of 41m at the transept crossing. Pause at the beginning of the nave for a remarkable overall picture of this singular building bathed in light. The upper storeys offer the chance of discovering the Romanesque parts of the edifice. They also command a superb panorama of the coast and the Channel Islands.
