Amiens – Cathédrale Notre-Dame

The cathedral at Amiens is stunning. Right in the centre of the old town town it towers above everything. It is the biggest and most beautiful of the french cathedrals.

I included quite a lot in my blog about it in 2019 so I’ll just add a couple of photos here.

The evening son et lumières throughout the summer is lovely.

The most interesting part is at the end when the cathedral is lit to show how it would have been originally – the scultured freizes would have been cloured and not just stonework as we see them today. How they mange to produce & project such an intricate pastiche is beyong me!
