Cathedral St. Andre is the heart of Bordeaux. The bell tower was built separately in case it were to tumble it wouldn’t crush the Cathedral. It’s beautiful inside with glorious stained glass windows. The plaza outside is a gather place for people of all ages. When we visited, hundreds of young people were disguised as zombies in a replay of... More

We went on the wrong day, but directly opposite was a museum of the resistance. I would have loved to visit it.

I go to a lot of cathedrals and many of this type can be dark inside however even in the depths of winter this cathedral is well lit. The candles are expensive (2.5 Euros) but lovely statue of the Virgin Mary so worth it.

This cathedral set in a delightful square is very imposing from the exterior. It is in the process of restoration/maintenance and it is interesting to compare how the ravages of time and pollution have affected those parts of the exterior not yet cleaned with the freshness of that which has been cleaned. While the interior is also very imposing, it... More

Super cathedral it's under maintenance but still very open I think it's on the final stage. Inside it's amazing and you can walk all over the place and enjoy the construction

The exterior is the star as the interior is a bit dark and cold! The inside is quite nice once you get acclimated but the outside is my favorite. At Christmas the Huge tree lit up at night with the the rose window was extraordinary. Be careful of very quiet electric tram running along!

Have visited the cathedral and the hôtel de ville area several times since moving to Bordeaux and it is easily one of my favourite areas of the city. The cathedral itself has fascinating architecture and the interior is absolutely staggering. Very large and spacious with plenty of things to wander around and look at. The only two things that I...
