Well, first of all, this has become our church since our move to Bordeaux. The Monseigner and other priests are quite nice, the services are wonderful. As a tourist, this Eglise is not to be missed or the wonderful art within its walls. Part of the Cours Malby area, developed by the Dominican Priest hundred of years ago, the churn's... More

We loved visiting and seeing the beautiful churches and cathedrals in Paris and Bordeaux. This one was smaller and so old. It was a wonderful experience to touch the stones knowing they were there for so many years.

Usually open and substantial church. Interesting windows. A 10 minute walk from the centre but located in an interesting residential area.

Whilst a number of French churches have been visited in the past, this venue is one of the best the writer has seen, unlike most French churches, It has a significant number of authentic exhibits dating from the period it was built. A significant amount of effort and money has been expended on the property and visitors would be doing... More

We are moving to Bordeaux to live, paint, write and enjoy life. We found the Notre Dame by accident, but as of next Sunday, it will become our new church.

The cathedral is running a free summer organ concert programme and by using their web site, we timed our visit with one of the evening shows in late July. This allowed us to explore before and after while enjoying some of the fine acoustics within this fine structure and taking the well-earned opportunity to rest our aching feet from a... More

Set in the middle of Bordeaux we were not expecting any more than the usual impresiive French styling.To our surprise we walked in on an English choir practising for a concert later that day.So we returned and throughly enjoyed the experience.Apparently this is a common occurance.

One of the most beautiful Cathederals I have seen in Europe. Although, there was quite a line to get in, it was worth it!
