Details

The portals errected around 1300 are and incredibly delicate exemple of gothic architecture
The different scenes represented can be considered and read as a stone Bible.
The center portal illustrates the Christ's Passion.

The south (right) portal here depicts : "The foolish virgins seducted by the temptator"

The right (south) aisle of the cathedral is more roman than gothic style.
The ticket booth you can see on the photo sells tickets for a little 'train' tour around the Petite France.
The palais des Rohan lies just across the place.

The left (north) aisle is probably the most delicately carved

It's inside that you can find the most beautiful elements of this 'stone lace'
