Went on a Friday AM where an open air market of local produce was held in the XV th century square. The Cathedral is a beautiful 1000-year old monument with colorful stained glass and an organ (free entrance).

Beautiful cathedral. Enjoyed solo singer’s rehearsal while we were inside. Restoration underway. Lovely square with restaurants and shops just outside the door.

The historic cathedral is worth a short visit as is just sitting in the square next to the fountain enjoying a drink in one of the several bars right there. Quaint

So peaceful off the bustling street. Beautiful smell which we couldn't decipher but would definitely recommend if you get a chance

The Cathedral Saint Vincent must be visited if you visit Chalon sur Saone. It is located in the center of the city. There is a nice little square just in front, it is called Place Saint Vincent and it is surrounded by cafes and restaurants....More

The busy square is full of bars and cafes and it is nice to step inside he cool interior for contemplative moment. Not a huge cathedral but worth a walk around. The garden outside was not worth a look.

It is located in a lovely little square in the town. The cathedral is beautiful...as many in Europe.

This beautifully positioned cathedral is well worth a visit, especially to see the stained glass windows. The quiet atmosphere and respectful behaviour of the visitors is noteworthy, adding to the atmosphere. The architecture reflects the range of periods during which this enormous building was constructed....More

This is quite an impressive structure situated along one side of the main square with restaurants and bars on the other three sides. Both exterior and interior worth taking a few minutes to examine, especially the interior. Nothing special, however.
