Well worth a visit. The stroll from town through the lanes or via the rampart are pleasant in themselves. It's a beautiful, imposing piece of architecture. I have been to a gospel concert here which was magic.

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

We visited on a Saturday evening just before closing time (7:00 pm). The cathedral is quaint and very elegant inside. I felt completely at ease despite an incredibly hectic drive to the site. Unfortunately we were not able to attend mass, which was at 11:00 am the following morning.

The facade of the cathedral is a real masterpiece. It is a great example of Romanesque architecture style.
Take your time to admire all the details of the scenes. Just fascinating !!

The building is gorgeous and a wonder to observe from inside and out. The wall in which the entrance is located is covered in engravings of Bible stories and the towers give the building a lot of character. Inside is a lot more simple than I had expected for a Catholic Church, especially the stained glass windows. A lot of history amongst the French wars and a nice place to sit and contemplate for a few moments.
