Noyon has long been a religious center - the present cathedral is the fifth to be built on this site. Both Charlemagne (768) and Hugh Capet (987) were coronated in Noyon Cathedral.    Begun in 1150 and completed by 1290, the present Noyon Cathedral replaced a predecessor that was destroyed by fire in 1131. It is considered a harmonious example of the transition from the Romanesque to Gothic style, and is one of the earliest Gothic cathedrals to be built in France.
