Very impressive cathedral in a lovely square in the middle of Noyon. Walked around a bit and asked for a stamp for my pilgrim passport.

Really worth the detour if nearby. There's even a small memorial for British soldiers killed in the wars. They do close for their lunch time, so be aware of what time you are visiting.

The only time you can visit the library is during the world heritage days in September. It's a must-see: old wooden building with very old books. The cathedral is an early gothic building. The visit is definitely worth it.
