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.

Cathedrale Notre-Dame de Laon reviews
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.
