Beautiful cathedral, a welcome cool break from the sweltering July heat. The tower is also worth a climb thanks to the stunning views from the top.

The light floods the large nave, although the area of chapels surrounding the choir is rather darker. It is a very attractive cathedral in an imposing square. There are guides offering different languages available (and I mean real people).

Know up front that the cathedral is closed after lunch for sieste, but reopens. Lots of restoration work. My French is not very good, and the volunteers in the cathedral spoke no English. Very beautiful and worth the visit.

Impressive building but very dirty by years of pollution. The interiors are unfortunately not very great apart from the grand organ. Locals are providing free tours inside.

The At. Andre Cathedral in Bordeaux, is a Gothic masterpiece. It is immense and has lots of stained glass, beautiful altars and many side chapels. It is right in the center of town, as are most cathedrals in Europe. Entrance is free and a guided visit, which we had, is well worth it although you can visit on your own.

We visited this Cathedral on a trip to Bordeaux - it is really beautiful. The building has a chequered life from its original creation in the 4th Century as a gallo-roman Cathedral. The history runs from that period to the present day and it is believed that there are many further treasures to be discovered both within and below the... More

We artived just in time for an orgsn concert, and the music made us sit down and admire the big and beautiful room. I can recommend this place, especially if there's a concert.

The outside its great example of the gothic architecture, it is in a great location you can see it from all angles and see all details around, it's being restaured and you can see the works and see the board with explaining works. Inside it's a pretty good sample of different styles, loved the painted walls.

Beautiful, massive, stained glass windows are impressive. Half of the outside has been sandblasted...like much of Bordeaux and the other half is still black. A work in progress but stunning to see the contrast.
