Notre Dame d’Amiens

On our way back home we made a rest in Amiens, the capital of the french region Picardie, north of the Normandie. We stopped to visit the cathedral Notre Dame d’Amiens.
On a rainy day we got a sunny break for our complete visit in Amiens. The cathedral is very impressive.
The cathedral is quite light compared to others we visited. Also the colorful windows were complete and the interior is very rich decorated.
Shortly after we entered the cathedral the organ player started his exercises. Even the organ is very loud (after leaving the cathedral we were able to listen to his playing while walking on the square before the cathedral without any problem).
He played for approximately an hour and it was wonderful listening to him.
A funny coincidence was finding 5 young women outside the cathedral while performing “I will follow him”. One of them was dressed up as a nun, just like in the hollywood movie “Sister Act” starring Whoopie Goldberg. The nuns dress didn’t look genuine for me. But I liked the performance and the bravery of those women to do so.
