Fisrt view of the mediaeval jewel, miraculously preserved from wars bombings when quite all the town has been erased as shows this post war buildings of brick on foreplan; Seduction immediately operates when appears this facade just cleaned by laser new technics, so white and so pristine; This jewel was built to be able to receive the numerous expected pilgrims when the precious Saint Relic of the Face of St Jean Baptiste was brought back here during the fourth crusade in 1206; Central belfry is the world highest wood one (112,7m),made of chesnut-tree wood covered with 71 tons of artistical work in lead; France Picardie Region Somme Department Amiens Capital Cathedral Notre Dame UNESCO World Heritage in 1981.

On l'appelle "La Référence" pour ce qui est du style Gothique; Construite en 1220; elle pourrait contenir 2 fois sa Soeur aînée Nore-Dame de Paris (1163) !!!! Merci cher Gilles!
