NOTES: The original cathedral, built in Romanesque style in 1152, was destroyed by fire caused by lightning in 1218. Reconstruction began in 1220 and the nave was completed in 1245. The rebuilding of the choir began c.1238 and was completed before 1269, and by 1288 only the tops of the towers remained incomplete. The south tower was completed in 1366 while the north tower was completed in 1402. It was restored by Viollet-le-Duc in the 1850s.
