Last year on the way back from Nantes, we stopped by a small town called Amiens in the north of France to see it’s world famous gothic cathedral. It was already dusk and drizzling a bit and on a Sunday evening, the town was almost empty.
It has charming alleys on the way up to the cathedral and a beautiful canal view in Quai Belu. It was so pretty during the night with the lights of the restaurants reflecting on the water.
When the rain started to fall, we went straight to Amiens Cathedral because we didn’t want to waste time. It was a sight to behold – very detailed design especially the facade and it’s towers. It is the largest Gothic cathedral in France and known as the “Parthenon of Gothic architecture” because of its pure gothic design.
