The spectacular stained-glass windows in this cathedral—180 of them—helped Troyes earn its nickname, the “Holy City of Stained Glass”. Arguably the building’s main claim to fame is that the Order of the Knights Templar was founded here in 1128/9 by St. Bernard of Clairvaux, whose remains are kept here in an exquisite reliquary casket.
