When night falls, the colours of Notre-Dame breath life back into the Saints, apostles and other figures sculpted in stone since the 13th century. The fabulous cathedral, a UNESCO world heritage site, invites you to take a unique look at the sculpture on its West side.

The magical effect of coloured lighting on the façade of the cathedral, created by the
company Skertzò, provides visitors with an original experience of this impressive gothic cathedral.


The cathedral is a UNESCO World Heritage site – Amiens Cathedral, in the heart of Picardy, is one of the largest ‘classic’ Gothic churches of the 13th century. It is notable for the coherence of its plan, the beauty of its three-tier interior elevation and the particularly fine display of sculptures on the principal facade and in the south transept.
