Photographer's Note

This is the Cathedral of Chambery, dedicated to Saint-François-de-Sales.

The workshop is the external view


In the enclosed little place Métropole, the cathedral has a handsome, though much restored, Flamboyant facade. The inside is painted in elaborate nineteenth-century trompe l'oecil, imitating the twisting shapes and whorls of the high Gothic style. The cathedral's treasury (May–Aug daily 3–6pm; free) is worth a look for its twelfth-century ivory diptych and thirteenth-century pyxis (a case for holding the Eucharist).
