Cathédrale St-Pierre


Begun in 1160, the original building took some 72 years to complete and has had a multitude of bits and pieces stuck on over the centuries. A small side-chapel, the Chapelle des Macchabées, was added in 1397; an incongruous Neoclassical portico - more reminiscent of a museum than a church - was tacked onto the main west front of the building in 1752, facing onto Cour St-Pierre; the two square towers above the east end are totally dissimilar, and between them rises a curious greenish steeple added in the late nineteenth century.
