Basilique de Notre-Dame de Fribourg shelters a beautifully restored 18th-century Neapolitan crib featuring 75 figurines re-enacting the nativity, annunciation and scenes from daily life.

It has a magnificent bell tower in Gothic style, visible from far away. The most remarkable thing in it is the tympanum of the main door, which is surmounted by a rose window. The nave of the cathedral is from the 13th and 14th century, but the choir underwent a reconstruction in the 17th. From the 15th century is La Chapelle Saint-Sépulcre with its beautiful stained glass and a famous organ.
This museum contains skeletal saintly relics, bedecked in jewels.
The quaint stone bridge Pont du Milieu offer great views.

The Town Hall is also an attractive edifice from the 16th century. The building is the home of the Parliament of Fribourg.
