Remarkable guide who communicated his passion for the history of Fr

Our guide, Marie-Pierre Garbe, kept us in suspense for more than 2 hours with an exciting description of the history of this cathedral, with historical reminders embellished with many anecdotes. Beyond the description of the building, it is a long page in the history of the monarchy that she has traced back with brio and passion. Truly a very enriching cultural break.
