Beauvais Cathedral Tour

This tour of Beauvais Cathedral is not your typical homage-rendering to the miracles worked by 13th century French cathedral builders. The interest and focus of this private tour of St. Pierre de Beauvais is seeing what went so wrong in the colossal enterprise of trying to build the biggest and tallest cathedral in all France.

Borrowing ideas from Chartres and Notre Dame de Paris (among others), Beauvais Cathedral is a mixture of High Gothic and Rayonnant styles of church architecture. Its construction was overseen by three different bishops, each with different ideas of what was to be done, calling into mind the adage about too many cooks spoiling the broth. Moreover, the efforts to build it were spread over 250 years.

Paris Luxury Tours usually suggests this unique escorted tour of Beauvais Cathedral in conjunction with a tour of Notre Dame de Amiens Cathedral, both to make a striking comparison, and to complete a full day of touring from Paris. Enthusiasts of church architecture might also wish to add a private tour of St. Denis Basilica, where most of the kings and queens of France are entombed.
