Dates back to the 11th century and similar to Notre Dam. A really interesting and well preserved piece of architecture.

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.

A very impressive cathedral which merits a detour to Noyon if you're not already in town. Make a point to spend a little time here.

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.
