Toul Things to Do
Two blocks away from the cathedral is the church of St.Gengoult which has a fine tower and is 15C Gothic and has a very fine cloister from the 16C in Renaissance style.
The cloister is set along the south side of the cathedral. It was built in the 13 and 14C before the west facade and it is one of the largest in France. The side along the south wall is incompletely built. Each of the other sides have triple decoration laterally in each bays and the cloister center is surrounded by colonnades and triple round windows above the open areas. The bays are four sided with vaults centering on clefs.
Inside the nave of the cathedral shows at the East end that the windows are more than half the half the total height. The lateral view of the central nave is more than 2/3 open as arcades and almost all of the upper parts is clerestory window space. The lateral aisles are lowers and have only modest sized windows. On the inner side of the west end is a giant organ; the present one was installed in 1963.Related to:
