This is an examples of a late Flamboyant Gothic Cathedral started in 1489. The incomplete church was consecrated in 1548 by which time the famous stained glass windows and the choir stalls were in place and the church was used through the transept. The rest of the vessel was only finished in in 1661. The West Towers were added with a carillon by 1681. As used today the chevet and choir are only for display of their furnishings. The regular church activities occur beyond the west side of the Jube. The length of the entire church is over 100 feet long with a fine Rose window at the end. Beyond this is a set of porches with towers and balustrades above.
