"Two world famous objects in one city." Beauvais by Askla

Beauvais Travel Guide: 49 reviews and 147 photos

Beauvais has a lot more to offer than just a low-cost airport, for which it is most well-known. Just take little time to explore this nice town and you'll find kind of a gem.
First of all there is the Saint Pierre Cathedral. The vaults are 48,6 m high, making it the highest uncompleted cathedral in the world. Uncompleted? Yes, see my tips for the info.

Inside the St. Pierre Cathedral will you find another rarity: the oldest chiming clock in the world! But there is more to see inside the Cathedral, like an astonishing astronomical clock built of more than 90.000 pieces.

    Trying to determine if a day trip to Beauvais from Paris is worthwhile. Your page certainly proves it is. Thanks!
