Quartier de la Cité information
In the heart of the old city, Cathédrale St-Maurice is one of the earliest examples of Plantagenet or Angevin architecture in France, distinguished by its rounded ribbed vaulting, 15th-century stained glass and a 12th-century portal depicting the Day of Judgment. Behind the cathedral on place Ste-Croix is the Maison d’Adam , one of the city’s best-preserved medieval houses (c 1500), decorated with a riot of carved, bawdy figures. From the square in front of the cathedral, a monumental staircase, the Montée St-Maurice , leads down to the river.
