Pretty cathedral - plenty of good photo opportunities of gorgeous architecture outside. Less interesting inside. In the old quarter of Angouleme so generally nice to stroll about

Beautiful Cathedral. Very Spacious and bright. Descriptions throughout Cathedral, but nothing was written in English. No English pamphlets available.

The cathedral of Angoulême is very old and the main part is in roman style. But it is still quite big and impressive and nicely decorated with stone statues on the tower. The surroundings are rather quiet with traffic, so you can enjoy everything in...More
