Visit to Coutances Cathedral - part 1
Originally shared by +Gavray gite rentals, Normandy France
I can highly recommend a guided tour of the upper parts of Coutances Cathedral in Normandy. The picture shows the stained glass windows high up in the roof space which you pass as you walk along the walkway you can see at the bottom of the picture. There are three levels to the tour and you also get to walk inside the lantern tower. A small, insignificant wooden door near to the main entrance reveals a stone staircase that leads to the hidden parts of the cathedral. Tours have to be reserved by calling +33 (0)2 72 88 14 25 and cost 8 euros for an hour and a half of discovery. Maximum of 14 people, minimum age of 10. Tours can also be arranged at any time for groups in English. Part 2 will cover the lower level of the cathedral.
