Picardie Things to Do: 31 reviews and 34 photos
Noyon is today a quiet, little town in the Somme Department, but it achieved a great significance during the Middle Ages as the seat of an independent stated ruled by its bishop.
Evidence of this significance is its magnificient cathedral, which substituted a previous Romanesque church, and was one of the first Gothic buildings. This extraordinary primitive Gothic is a must for anybody with the slightest inclination towards the history of the art.
