    Cathédrale Notre-Dame d'Amiens

    The pride of Amiens.

    The rapid construction of the cathedral of Amiens, from 1220 to 1288, explains the homogeneity of its architecture. It is the largest cathedral in France with a length of 145 meters and a height of the nave vaults reaching 42.30 meters.

    In the 19th century, Viollet-le-Duc's restoration was to restore to former glory the corners turrets, gargoyles and the gallery of bellringers. It was classified as a Masterpiece of World Heritage by Unesco in 1981.

    On its facade, admire the gallery of Kings - bringing more than two dozen towering statues - and the rose above them.
