Autun was a very important place for Christian and we clearly see it at the Saint Lazare Cathedral being very well decorated and ornamented.

I am sure this cathedral is beautiful and it is imposing from the outside, but at the time of writing more than half the interior is partitioned off for restoration. So there is not a lot to see inside and the photographers were short of...More

Brandnew interior, very good and friendly service. If the weather is nice, you can sit under the umbrellas next to the famous cathedral and enjoy excellent french kitchen. Anytime again!

Nice but steep walk to the cathedral. The cathedral itself is not worth a visit but is not very special compared with other cathedrals in France. There are nice restaurants with terras around the cathedral.

The typanum and pillars outside are amazing but there is a lot of renovation going on inside the cathedral which limits how much you can see.

If you're in Autin, the cathedral is worth a walk up to. The outside is quite detailed and you can walk all round it and go inside. It isn't the most beautiful of cathedrals we have been to, but there is some interesting architecture. In...More
