La cattedrale di Losanna è il più bello e grande edificio gotico della Svizzera. Anche se è stato inaugurato nel 1275 la torre a nord è ancora mancante. Durante la giornata si può salire in cima alla torre per godersi una fantastica vista della città e non ci si può perdere le vetrate a colori. Dalle 22 alle 02 il banditore comunale grida l'ora dai quattro angoli della torre, una tradizione che risale al medioevo - e il comune è l'ultimo a farlo in Europa. Spesso nella cattedrale si organizzano concerti di musica classica.
