The outside of the Dom is immense. It requires a wide-angle lens (which I forgot) to get the West facade in a single picture. The S. transept door faces a second square where the museums are. It too requires more careful photo technic or time than I possessed. Finally the East apse is full of Gothic pinnacles and other decoration that is best seen from the river or its east bank.
