A magnificent style
Saint Benigne cathedral is built in a magnificent Gothic style and dates from the year 1280. At the top, there is an steeple of 93 metres high, and it has an unusual multi-coloured roof. In the beginning, the church was a monastery. Inside, the nave has five vaulted sections, and an impressive organ. The church is very sober, absolutely devoid of decorative objects. You can visit the crypt, which contains the remains of a second century sarcophagus. Because of the pollution that blackens its facade, it is often undergoing renovations.
