"Noyon" Picardie Things to Do Tip by DanielF

Picardie Things to Do: 31 reviews and 34 photos

  Cathedral of Our Lady
by DanielF
 
 

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.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
