At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

A local treasure.

Raised from the 15th century onwards, the Saint-Pierre et Saint-Paul cathedral is a masterpiece of Flamboyant Gothic architecture - it is the city's pride and joy. The interior, lit up by 500m² of stained glass, is a place of splendour and beauty. The tomb of François II and Marguerite de Foix represents the culminating point of the guided tour. Sculpted upon request of Anne de Bretagne, it is decorated with the double face of a young woman and an old man, a symbol of the four cardinal virtues.
