Not to be confused with its more famous namesake in Paris, this 11th century church is beautiful in its own right, with its elaborately carved facades and detailing.

Worth a Visit

Yet another beautiful church in Bordeaux. It does take some planning to find but is worth the effort.

The church was beautiful inside, and very well maintained. It was bustling with tourists and a wonderful haven from the heat on a hot day.

When I arrived, there's someone playing the organ and it's awesome to have this kind of opportunity. The atmosphere is warm and calm. The stained glasses are very beautiful!

Amazing church which is well worth a trip. Free music recitals regularly. The church has a really interesting history and also contains impressive works of art.

Not as impressive as St Andrei church. You have to cross a second-hand market to get to church. Some modern glass work in it.

The ceilings are magnificent, as well as the alter. I used a Sony a6000 mirrorless camera with the 16-50mm lens to capture the scene, hand held, no flash. What a joy to be in such a place and not feel intrusive.

This church is tucked away, but don't give up. Beautiful alter area. It feels like a local parish, which is different for most churches in Europe.

You cant visit Bordeaux without visiting this famous Church.. It can be seen from almost everywhere and is like a symbol of Bordeaux. I strongly recommend it to all tourists.

What tickled my imagination was that Eleanor of Aquataine was married here. Actually only a small part of the church survives from Eleanor's time, but this tidbit made the church come alive in history. You can also catch the tram here to go down to the riverside.
