Cathédrale St-Pierre et St-Paul information
Troyes’ most important house of worship, 114m long, incorporates elements from every period of champenois Gothic architecture. The Flamboyant west facade , for instance, dates from the mid-1500s, while the choir and transepts are more than 250 years older. The interior is illuminated by a spectacular series of some 180 stained-glass windows (13th to 17th centuries) that shine like jewels when it’s sunny. Also of interest: a fantastical baroque organ (1730s) sporting musical putti (cherubs), and a tiny treasury (open July and August only) with enamels from the Meuse Valley. Back in 1429, Joan of Arc and Charles VII stopped off here on their way to his coronation in Reims.
