A beautiful representation of the architecture of a number of periods in the region. Simply impressive and somewhat humbling.

Evening violin and cello concert in the cathedral. Great way to spend a vacation evening off the tourist track.

Huge building with a great feeling of vastness. Can't really enthuse about the interior as it is typical of its type, however, the visitor gets a fantastic view of the exterior, especially of the roof, from the bell tower next door. Well worth a visit!

Great history here in a magnificent setting that is the spiritual center of Bordeaux. Use the Cathedral as a focal point for an enjoyable day in the city. If you can handle the spiral staircase and steps, see the Cathedral from the Tour Pey-Berland adjacent. Easily the best view!

Beautiful gothic church where Eleanor of Aquitaine married Louis, King of France before the marriage was annulled and she married England's Henry II. Has the typical gothic features, but I can't resist an old church anywhere! Lovely organ of later date, and the surrounding square has a market on Sunday morning.

This Roman Catholic church located in Place Pey Berland is huge, consecrated in 1096 it a very impressive building which has its own bell tower which is separate from the church.

An interesting cathedral with some good stained glass. The carvings around the entry doors were in good condition. Nothing to make this cathedral stand out among many exceptional cathedrals in France.

Interesting 14th century structure. The stone carvings on the exterior are of excellent quality. You can also climb the tower and get some nice views of the city.
