Cathedrale Notre-Dame de Laon is one of the most important examples of Northern France Gothic architecture of the 12th and 13th centuries. The building is in a cruciform shape and the choir terminates in a straight wall instead of in an apse. The cathedral has stained glass dating back to the 13th century and a chancel screen from the 18th century. Although the cathedral suffered some damage during the French Revolution and the Franco-Prussian War of 1870, it escaped both World Wars unharmed.

  • We visited the cathedral whilst walking around Laon old town. It's a quiet place for reflection and was lovely and cool whilst hot outside.

  • The cathedral is unbelievable. The ceiling height is off the charts high. Sun altars surround the main altar. Nice stained glass windows. Recommended.

  • Laon Cathedral is one of the most elaborate and best-preserved of the early French Gothic cathedrals. It is notable for the stylistic unity and consistency maintained over the different phases of its construction. Must visit 👍
  • Amazing building, the architecture and stone work is incredible, to think it was completed over 700 years ago astounds me.
