What's Beauvais Like?
For many, the Beauvais Cathedral serves as the primary draw to the city. A variety of disasters and problems have befallen the Cathedral over the years. From over ambitious plans, to a fire in 1225, to the continual problems with walls and towers collapsing as the centuries wear on her frame. Despite this, fantastic stained glass windows still adorn the Cathedral and inside you can find the largest 19th century astronomical clock in the world. Near the cathedral is a museum celebrating Beauvais role in the rug and carpet industry. Elsewhere, the church of St. Etienne features Renaissance style architecture though parts of the church from its first construction in the 12th century still stand. You can also visit the maladrerie, a series of buildings where monks looked after the sickly. Still standing and able to explore are the dormitory, chapel, and barn.
